    Hi, I am a non-EU citizen who dreams about studying medicine in the UK. I know how difficult it is, especially right now. I have researched quite a lot
    So I have been living in the EU country for 5 years now, 4 years with permanent residence and my parent is working here and living with me. I read that some unis might concider me as a Home/EU student,do you know if that is correct? All the links about seem to be down for some reason
    I cannot afford to pay 30 thousand a year just for tuition...And there are no scholarships availible.
    Can somebody please give me some advice on that, I would consider any suggestion
    I really do not want to give up on my dream, although I know there are other options where to study and it is not the end of the world. Still, I think I ought to try
    Thanks

    I think EU residents (3 years or more) are eligible for home fees. Unis are the best people to ask.

    Google UKCISA and check the rules yourself. If in doubt, email Admissions. .
    Although Brexit can (and will) change these rules, it will not happen overnight.

    I'm not 100% sure but I think you need to be EU national or a family member of one and have lived in EU for 3 years. Just having lived in EU is not enough unless you became a citizen of that country. Try looking at the rules in UKCISA website.

    All I see that would apply to you is if you have a certificate of entitlement to the right of abode in UK or have indefinite leave to enter/remain in UK. For everything else you need to be EU national or have lived in UK or have refugee status

    You need to have spent at least 3 years living in EU if you want to be considered European student because of your father's nationality. Which means you will most likely be considered an international student for your fee status

    They count it from the start of your course. So if your course is 5 years, you will still not be considered European student. But if you did a 3 year course and then applied for another course afterwards, they you would be considered European student as long as you meet other requirements. However, that is with the current rules. By then Brexit should have fully happened so it is likely that European students won't get reduced fees anymore.
