How to determine if I will pay home or abroad fees for UK uni?

    Hey all, short backstory is I failed my AS levels, had no chance to pass A2, dropped out there, trying to reapply this year around to intensive and 2 year courses to no avail. I had basically decided to study abroad outside the EU for 2 years and as its already getting late into the academic year I was hurrying. However, my cousin had just mentioned living outside the eu for 2 years means paying exorbitant fees on entering uni.

    What I'm asking is, how will I determine what I will pay? I'm a full UK resident and national and have a British passport, I will only be living abroad for 2 years so the 3 year living in the uk thing is confusing. I don't want to end up paying anything close to £100k for 4 years or so of uni :/

    Thanks for any help, much appreciated!

    Ps: wasn't sure where to post this so I just put it in A level.

    See http://www.ukcisa.org.uk/Information...and-fee-status

    Particularly the definition for Ordinary Residence http://www.ukcisa.org.uk/Information...st6085&rl_id=4

    Temporary visits outside the UK don't affect your ordinary residence as long as you can prove that they're temporary (ideally with a time limited visa or similar) and that you have ties to the UK (UK bank account, UK voting registration, UK tax records etc)

    Ello PQ can we borrow your bain on this

    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=4334372

    I think he was trying to fin an alternative route to be classed as home student nased on being a descendant or dependent of his grandparents.

    I am not convinced he can, but much easer to use your brain.

    Thanks will be interested to see the answer.

    Thanks for all the replies, much appreciated, got into contact with a few universities and UKCISA. Unis haven't replied as of yet but UKCISA said that if you make the case with enough evidence its only temporary and you come back to visit as often as possible then Universities can be flexible.

    Sorry about posting in the wrong area, when picking the areas from the ask a question I couldn't figure out where to put it.

    Thanks again~
