Hi Baka,

You would need to have your ILR granted before the 1st day of the 1st academic year of your course to be eligible. If it is granted after you start your course you would still not be eligible for funding.

Thanks, Drew
Hi there. Are you an EU national? Did you apply for funding for your 1st year? Thanks, Leah.

Hi, I am not EU national but think about paying myself for the first year and switch to student finance loan later when I get ILR

Hi Baka,
You would need to have your ILR granted before the 1st day of the 1st academic year of the course. If you do not have it you will not get funding for any years from us.

Thanks, Drew

I also want to clarify the following statement from the guidelines:

> You may also be eligible for tuition fee funding if either of the following apply to you:
> ...
> you’re the family member of a person with settled status and you’ve lived in the UK, Channel Islands or Isle of Man for 3 years in a row before the first day of the first academic year of your course

Is the "settled status" applied to EU nationals only or ILR from my father will work as well?

Hi Baka,

It would not matter about your fathers status as you do not have an eligible status. How old are you and how long have you lived in the UK?

Thanks, Drew
