Help with living costs
You may be eligible for help with your living costs if you’ve lived in the UK for more than 5 years before the first day of the first academic year of your course.
You only need to have lived in the UK for 3 years before the first day of the first academic year of your course if you’re either:
- applying for the 2015 to 2016 academic year
- taking a postgraduate course and also applying for a Disabled Students’ Allowance
If you’re eligible, apply for help with your living costs as though you were a UK national.
Academic years start on 1 September, 1 January, 1 April or 1 July. Ask someone who runs your course if you don’t know which one applies.
Example If your course begins on 20 September 2017, you must have lived in the UK since 1 September 2012.
