Scottish Student Loan Apllication

    Hi guys

    I recently applied to go into the second year of a degree in Ayrshire, Scotland. I was just wondering if anyone would know if I'm entitled to apply for a student loan?

    I sent the SAAS an email and they said they could not consider me because I would not be a 'home' student as you will not be ordinarily resident in Scotland on 1 August 2014.

    I don't really get this because I do plan on living in Ayr (obviously) but I haven't sorted a place to live yet. Do I need to be residing in Scotland by the 1st of August?

    Anyone who has any info, I'd appreciate it. Thanks
