In order to be eligible for funding for 16-19 education and training, a student must have the legal right to be resident in the United Kingdom at the start of their study programme. Any student, including EU students, who are legally resident in the UK at the start of their course in the academic year 2019 to 2020 will continue to be eligible for funding for the duration of their course.
