    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!

    Fee status (and student support) is based on "ordinary" residence - that ignores temporary absences (even if they last years) - if you can prove that your time out of the UK was for a fixed period of time (visas or your father's work contracts are most common) then the fact that you have a house in England will likely place you firmly in the home category.
