I completed my undergrad in 2018 and afterwards went travelling. I was travelling in New Zealand when covid hit and ended up staying there longer than planned as I had to work back my savings etc. I then travelled to Aus and have been living and working casually up until now.#
I feel that I'm ready to come back to the UK and I wish to study a post grad degree. I will need a student finance loan to afford to do this.
Will I still be eligible? I left the UK December 2018 and will return this December. I have been back for visits in between travels and I still have my residential family address where mail is delivered and an active UK bank account.
You never know until you apply. Given that your uk address and details are still in use, give your application a shot and see how it goes. There’s usually a lower chance of approval if you’ve been for more than 3 years.
