I am a dual citizen British and Canadian. I was born in the U.k. but have grown up mostly in Canada. I have been accepted to three excellent Universities for a masters degree and have one pending application at another. Unfortunately despite my citizenship I am considered an international student because I have been out of the country for so long. The problem is I can't find international funding because I am a U.K. citizen. I've looked at dozens and dozens of scholarships and bursaries and found that some combination of my residence and citizenship status makes me ineligible and I am in a position where I can only cover two thirds of my tuition by myself.
Are there any scholarships out there that would apply to me? Loan programs? If it makes any difference I do intend to work and live in the U.k. once I am done my degree.

Almost certainly not. Ask the university/department you've applied to, or learned societies related to your subject, but don't count on finding anything. Would you consider studying in Europe? You would be entitled to EU fees there; most countries there have no residency requirement like the UK does.
