    Hi,
    I'm and EU citizen and have just graduated from Dental school this year in India.
    I did my A-levels in England and came to India to do my degree. My parents still stay in England.
    I am now planning on applying for a postgraduate course in Queen Mary (MSc in Clinical Dentistry).
    I want to know , since I'm an EU citizen but have been away from UK for 5 years (except for visiting my parents and sister every year), will I still be eligible for postgraduate funding?

    Thanks in advance

    If you can prove that your stay in India was solely for education purposes then you should still be classed as resident in the UK for funding purposes.

    Proof includes things like: if you kept a UK bank account while you were away, if you stayed on the electoral roll, if your parents kept a room for you, if you had a student visa etc. Plus the fact that your course was 5 years and you left for that period and then returned.

    It's a good idea to apply as soon as applications open in June/July - then if there are any requirements for evidence there's lots of time to get them sorted out before your course starts.
