Am I considered as home student or an international student/ Home or Overseas fees? watch

    Well before my family and I left England, My dad was told that his employment contract will be permanent. When we left and moved to Dubai, he was told that he'll sign his contract EVERY year so it will get renewed .
    This is our 7th year here (in Dubai) and I'm planning to move back for uni (I'm 17) but I'm not sure whether I'm considered as a home rate student. The uni that I'm planning to go hopefully wrote on the'r website the rules for 'home' fee status and It said,: There are special rules if you normally live in the UK but you have been living somewhere else temporarily e.g. because of your parent's temporary employment overseas.

    it depends on the university - in our case 4 out of 5 universities considered my daughter "international" in circumstances similar to yours; only one rated her 'EU/UK' for fees purposes. Basically if they can squeeze the higher fees out of you, whether or not you're British, they will
