Student Finance - help

I’m currently applying for student finance and I’m not a UK national. One of the questions asks what status I have. I currently have a pre-settled status that is due to expire in August. My settled status will then come into effect as soon as the former expires.
What should I pick as the answer for the question?
Threads merged - please don't make multiple threads on the same question. Also, please note that your question will be answered by an offical SFE/SLC rep during normal office hours (ie probably tomorrow now). :smile:

Hi there,

Can you confirm if you're applying for undergraduate or postgraduate finance? When are you looking to start the course? Can you confirm your age, nationality, and whether you hold any qualifications currently?

Thanks,
Claire

I’m applying for undergraduate finance. Looking to start the course in September 2024. I’m 17 and from Italy. I’m currently in Year 13 in Sixth Form.

Thank you. Do you know the date your settled status comes into effect? Thanks, Jason

I think end of August, possibly the 31st.
Thanks.

I would advise sending your pre settled evidence just now (including your share code and Home office letter) and then submitting the Settled evidence once you receive this for it to be approved. Just to also check are you or your parent(s) working at the moment? Thanks, Jason

Yes both of my parents are working.
When I pick the pre-settled status option, it tells me to complete a paper form that’s around 60 pages long. Do I have to complete that?

Yes, if it's not allowing you to do it online I would advise doing the paper form.

Section 12 onwards are your parents details if you're looking to be assessed for the maximum. If not you don't need to supply this.

If you send the following evidence with your share code and pre settled status letter

Evidence of the chosen parent’s or step parent’s ID and status; we require the parent’s or step parent’s original Passport or National ID Card AND the parent’s or step parent’s EUSS share code to confirm their status.

Parent - a photocopy of the students birth certificate naming the parent

The parent or step parents last 3 months payslips (if available)

The parent or step parents most recent P60 (if available)

Termly evidence

A copy of the parent or step parents contract** of employment, this will need to confirm the following;


Required;

employment start date

contracted hours per week.

contracts must be signed and dated by either the company or the employee

Desirable;

hourly rate of pay

contract type - permanent, fixed or temporary.


Once you receive your settled status you can upload your new share code and home office letter to your account which will mean going forward you won't need to provide further evidence of their employment. You can alternatively wait until you have the settled status to avoid sending this evidence but as you won't receive it until 31st of August this is to avoid any delays in your application being processed.

Thanks, Jason
