Hi Muzammil Mangal,

You usually wouldn't be eligible for funding if you are a Rest of the World national in the UK on a spouse visa. If your wife is a UK national you may be eligible for funding though. If you have been resident in the UK and Islands for 3 years prior to the first day of the first academic year of the course and have a valid status in the UK you may be eligible for fee only funding.

Thanks,
Calum
