    Will I be considered a home student?
    I am a British (English) national, but I haven't lived in England for several years, as my father works overseas. We have a house in England, which of course comes with taxes (paid ).
    My family plans on moving back to England soon, and I want to apply to uni. However, I won't fit the standard criteria for 'home student', as I haven't lived in the EU for 3 years; yet I won't be an international student, as my permanent place of residence would be in England.
    What am I? Identity crisis!

    NB Sorry if this is in the wrong forum.

    Ordinary residence (which is what counts for student finance and fees) is based on where you'd NORMALLY live. That means that temporarily living abroad (even if that covers years) wont affect it.

    If you can provide visas or work contracts to SFE to show that your absence from the UK was for a limited period of time for your family working abroad then you'll be fine.

    Being able to prove that you've maintained a residence and paid taxes will add to the case.
