Question Applying for Canadian student loan from the UK - help!

Hi - just wondering if anyone could help with my query...I'm currently in the UK with my teenager (we both have PR visas), my teenager starts uni in Nova Scotia this September, I'll be staying in the UK until early next year. Does anyone know if my teenager is eligible to apply for the Canadian student loan? Any advice is very much appreciated thanks!

To apply for government student loans and grants, you must:

be a Canadian citizen, a permanent resident of Canada or a protected person;
be a permanent resident of a province or territory that issues government student loans and grants*;
demonstrate financial need;
be enrolled in a degree, diploma or certificate program that runs for at least 12 weeks in a 15-week period and is offered by a designated post-secondary institution;
be taking at least 60 percent of a full course load if you are a full-time student, or between 20 and 59 percent of a full course load if you are a part-time student;
pass a credit check if you are 22 or older and are applying for student loans and grants for the first time; and
not have exhausted your maximum lifetime limit of financial assistance, including interest-free status

If you are not living in Canada, point 2 would cause a problem.

Thanks Aviator, I wonder if I'll have to reside in NS at the same time then...think I'll wait to apply in September when we are both in NS (me just for a few weeks). Hoping we may have other options to explore too. Thanks again for the info
