Sfe Eligibility

I came to the UK on the 10th September 2021 and I have a settled status in the UK. I start uni in September this year and I don't know if I'll be eligible for the student loans. Also, I have been assessed as a home student regarding fees. Would I be able to receive student loans?
Hi there. What is your nationality and where were you living before moving to the UK? Thanks, Leah.

I'm Nigerian and was living in Nigeria
Thanks. You must have a full 3 year residency in the UK to be eligible to apply for our home funding. Therefore, if you course starts in September 2024, you must have been living in the UK on 01/09/2021.

If you were not in the UK on 01/09/2021, you would not be able to apply for a September intake, but you would be able to apply for a course on a later intake, such as January, April or July 2025. Thanks, Leah.

Even if your course starts on the 25th of September 2024 and you have been in the UK since 10th September 2021?
Hi Ggggggggg56,

Yes, that is correct. You need to have 3 years full residency in the UK to be eligible.
