I have been accepted on a 2011-2012 PGCE (MFL Secondary) and I'm really happy about it. Unfortunately I've just found out that I do not qualify for Student Finance's Grant as a home student due to my residency in the UK being less than 3 years. I am French and I came to the UK looking for work prior to going into teaching but I was fortunate to be accepted on the PGCE this year. I have permanently relocated here but I can't prove it. As a single parent I'm very worried. My question is: If I don't qualify for the Student Finance Grants do I still qualify for the MFL Secondary Bursary? And is it worth challenging SFE's decision? As I came here as a jobseeker and I think I've read somewhere that you can apply for Grants in that case. What do you advise me to do? Thank you.
