Fee status is done on residence now. So if you lived abroad for your first many years of life, but have been in the UK for the past 5, then you will be classed as a home student.

Then you're unlikely to be classed as a home student because you don't meet the residence requirements

Hi

You can find information about our criteria for assessing fee status on our website.

I hope this helps!

Best wishes

Yes. We called the free advice help line run by UKCISA and they advised us to claim dual residence as we spent so much of our time in UK. Had to provide unis with all sorts of proof of the time and 'footprint' in UK (eg house ownership, plane tickets and dates etc). It worked with a couple of unis, we are waiting on the others at the moment.

And make sure you give it a good try in any case. I had loads of people saying don't bother, it won't work etc like they knew and then it did work. So each uni has its own criteria that we can't know about, and you don't lose anything by trying.
