I brought my son who is non- EEA national to live with me five years ago, He was 16 years (minor) when he joined me in the UK and now 21. He enrolled in the Uni this Sept and would have to apply an ILR in Feb. 2017. I have a few questions to ask; All his five years he was student; doing his GCSE, AS and A2 levels. he did a BTech level 2 in the college in his first year and got a certificate and decided to go the GCSE- A level route in order to gain admission to a good university which he did. During his studies he did work (part time) for nearly to 2 years ( only on weekends & school holidays to help support his studies.
1. Does he qualify for student finance- student loan & living cost allowance?
2. what documents will I need to apply for ILR for him next February?
please advise me.
What immigration route is son actually on? (UK or EU)rassan wrote:Thanks for the update. In this case in applying for my son's PR; his visa is due to expire in Feb. 2017. Can can I apply a PR for my self (EEA national living and working in UK continuously for 10 years) together with my son ( son ;non-eea national ) on the same form and if so which form do i use to apply EEA 3 or EE4 ? will myself and my son have to go through this bio metric process? What is this bio metric process all about?
Also I have a brother living in Germany (non-eu) for 20 years ( has an indefinite leave to remain in Germany) who wants to visit me here in UK and needs an invitation. How do i go about it?
Obie can you say which part of the funding regs you are referring to? unless the son has PR in his own right which the OP says wil not be the case until Feb 2017, he does not have an independent right to funding if his father is still in the UK. If for example his father had now left the UK he could claim funding without showing dependency but as the father is still here, he can't do this.Obie wrote:If he resided in the UK as a family member of a migrant worker, then he has an independent right to Student loan, even if he is not still dependent on you, as he installed himself in the UK at a time when his father was a migrant worker.
