    Hi all,
    I got in to cambridge this year and in my offer letter I have been classified as a Home/EU student. So im all set but a question popped up in my mind and I just want to ask how it works.

    I have both Malaysian and UK nationality, in my UCAS form I put the French nationality first and Malaysian second. I live in France.

    I just wonder, how come Cambridge decided to classify me as a Home/EU student and not international for the fees. Obviously they would make a lot more money if the classified me as international.
    Is it perhaps so that if an applicant has dual nationality of which one is EU/Home and the other International, they automatically classify you as a EU/Home? Or is it so that I am classified as EU because I live in France?

    Again, im not complaining that I have been placed in a status which means I dont have to pay huge tuition fees, I am just curious.

    Have you been living in France for the last 3 years (not just for your education)? If so, then I think that's why.

    Simply because as you're french, you're a European Citizen. European Union countries can't treat differently their own people and EU citizen.

    As long as you've been living and studying in France for 3 years they count you as EU student fee wise.
