    Hi

    I am a UK citizen but have been living and working in France for the last five years. I will be resident in England from May this year and applying for finance to start a foundation year then honours degree in September 2016. I have an NI number and British passport can I apply as a UK student? I will be living with my husband who has a low income and we have one dependant child.

    Thanks,

    Cazfranglais

    Hi Cazfranglais

    As a UK National you do not need to meet the 3 year residency criteria as long as you have been living in the EU (EEA) or Switzerland for at least 3 years and you are ordinarily resident in the UK on the first day of the term of your course.

    Thanks

    Thanks so much Mark, I was beginning to panic after reading some threads on here! When it comes to filling out the application is there anyone I will be able to call to help? I imagine it is going to be quite complicated as our income has been in France.

    Thanks

    Hi again

    You can download a paper copy of the form or view it online once available which will give you time to go over everything. You can then send this by post or put all the details in online.

    Thanks
