The thing is, would the exchange program stop me from applying as a EU home student because of the "ordinarily resident for the three years before the first day of the course" rule?
I'm really lost and I've looked everywhere but I can't find anyone who's been in the same position as me, some advice would clear my mind a lot. Thanks!
So my story is:
I am a EU National, born and lived in a EU country all my life, went to school there, worked, have a bank account and my family lives there as well. I hold dual citizenship, Greek and Canadian which I got from my grandparents who lived in Canada for a while.
For the past three years, starting 2012 I lived in Greece, however, in August 2014 I moved for 8 months in Canada to pursue studies at a university, in order to determine what I wanted to with my life. They offered a good program, like a foundation year, and this way I had the ability to develop my interests in various departments. However I was accepted at a full four years BA program and then withdrew, since my intentions from the first place was to stay only for 8 months and then pursue my degree in the EU. I returned in the EU in April right after 8 months.
Despite having being accepted into a four year program, I have a letter from an academic ad visor, that says that my intentions were to stay only for 8 months and a letter from a professor of the same content.
Will I be classified as an overseas student because of that? AND will I still be entitled to a loan?
