    I am a student holding a dual citizenship to both Canada and Slovenia. I have lived my entire life in Canada (I have family in both countries) but wish to apply to universities in Europe. I don't quite understand what 'ordinary resident' is, and how that affects me.

    So, given my situation, would I be eligible for EU/UK fees or would I be paying the International Student tuition fees?

    International Student fees most likely as you are not a resident of a European country.

    Universities I have looked at outside of UK do not require one to be an 'ordinary resident' - citizenship is enough. So does this only apply to schools in the UK?

    In most if not all cases, UK universities care about residency. For other countries in Europe, I believe residency may apply as well. Canada doesn't care about residency (correct me if I'm wrong) I think but it's an exception.

    International. My children are British and I still pay overseas fees, as we have been in California for 10 years.

    If you have lived your entire life in Canada then you have not been resident in the EU.

    You would need to move to the EU for 3 years prior to the start of your course to be eligible for home fees.
