Smile HEADACHE FROM STUDY LINK!!!

Hello,
'm shocked to see this information from study link
What are the changes?
To be eligible for a Student Allowance or Student Loan for study that starts on or after 1 January 2014, students who are not NZ citizens, refugees or protected persons must:

be ordinarily resident in New Zealand; and
have resided in New Zealand for three years; and
have held the right to reside in New Zealand indefinitely for three years.
This stand-down period was previously two years.

Here is my Case!!!
am living with my step father who is a Kiwi,and am not sure if the changes above have concerns with me at all!! am i right?
please anyone with advise
regards

from reading that it doesn't seem to take into consideration who you live with just what you visa status is

Yes, it is all dependent on what visa you are on, as to whether you are eligible for study link. It could also make a difference regarding your fees too, if you are not a permanent resident.

Same in the UK. You have to have been resident for 3 years to receive any assistance. Makes sense no?
