I'm in my 3rd year as an undergrad at a moroccan university,im actually going in exchange this semester to france. My father is british and lives in the uk (parents seperated always lived with mom). I never lived in the uk, i have a bank account in england. I'm registered with a local g.p but didnt pay him a visit since 2007.
I was wondering if there was any way for me to pay home tuiton fees instead of international fees for my post graduate course ? Since i should be a resident which im not.
Do you think that i would be a eligible for a student loan ?
Any additional information would be helpful
No you are not British, you have never lived in the UK and you won't be studying in the UK. Not even British students get funded to study abroad, unless it's part of the course. Why do you think you should be subsidised, and why would you be given a student loan when you live in morocco and there would be no way of getting the loan back off you, if you return to Morrocco. I don't think you should be even asking this question.
You will be able to qualify for home fees if you have lived in the UK 3 years prior to the start of your course, in some cases you might be able to get home fees if your family has owned or maintained a property in the UK.
It has to be for 3 years before the start of the course for reaosns other than education too.
Thank you all for taking the time to answer my questions that's very kind of you. I will now start looking elsewhere for a master as the international fees are unaffordable. Even though i really want to study in the UK.
Totally agree with you, UK nationals get a raw deal- even if student loans are not available there should be a system to charge home fees only to uk nationals as most have strong links back to the UK and parents have paid years of tax before leaving the UK.
