    Hi,

    I was born in UK and I hold a British passport. When I was 2 my parents moved to Spain where I still live and have studied for my A levels.
    I have applied to enter Uni in UK on Sept 17 and Student Finance England tells me I will be consider as a EU student. Is this right???? I am British, my parents are British. Why can´t I have the same rights?? Can anyone help please?
    Thanks

    You'll be an EU student, it goes off of residency for the past few years before your degree. Your passport doesnt make a difference.
