Confused - do I count as an international student? watch


    (Original post by Kahani_Moon)
    Obviously it's better to actually look this up, but when I was applying 3 years ago I was living abroad. It was in Europe, so that may have had an impact. Anyway, most of my friends were counted as EU status as they were British, but had not lived in Britain for the required time. So they paid the same fees as British students, but they didn't get the loans or grants. I imagine if you remained in Malaysia, this will be the case for you. However, because I could prove that my family had no choice moving oversees, I could qualify for the loans. You may be able to get this, but there are specific requirements.
    If She remains in Malaysia, he probably won't be eligible for anything. Being in the EU is different as EU students still pay 'home' fees, but they don't get grants or loans from the UK Student Finance. There are loans for EU students however, but they are through EU Customer Services. Here: http://www.slc.co.uk/about%20us/remi...rectorate.html

    I actually ended up qualifying as an EU student. So I pay 'home' fees but I have to get my loan from the EU Customer Services; but I chose to just pay my fees upfront. But this isn't really relevant to the OP.

    EDIT: She not he.
