Hi, the criteria for Home/EU tuition fee status are sorta confusing me. I'm a British national but I have been living in Asia for the majority of my life. I lived in Uk until I was 9 and now I'm in my late 17s and I was wondering If I would qualify for the UK home student fees. What do you guys think?

PS I lived in the UK for 1 year while doing my AS level, but I left after completing it I was 16

Before you can tap into home student benefits you have to show you have enough of a connection with the UK or EU by being a resident for the three years preceding the course you wish to start.


You are gong to be unable to do this. as you live outside the UK.

The answer at this point is no an you will be classed as an international student.

Three years in total or the three consecutive years before the start of the term?

You're a foreigner, so just realise that you can't get home fees. It's the three years consecutively before 1st September of the year of entry, but you will NOT be able to fufill that at all Unless you move back to the UK permanently.

Consecutive. No you arent a foreigner as you are still a UK national just not a resident because you live outside the UK and EU.

I'm a British citizen, and even foreigners with EU nationality can still be eligible for the home fee. I understand the three year criteria is not met in my case, but i feel a little hostility in the way you worded your answer, but thanks for your input anyway, also my mums english

I wonder if the three year criteria can be overlooked as long as I have permanently relocated to the UK and I have British citizenship?

The system isn't fair. There really ought to be a fee rate for UK citizens that's below the overseas rate IMO.

I'm British. My children are British. I've paid more tax in the UK than most will pay in their entire working life, but we now live in California (past 10 years). I have to pay overseas fees for my children to study in the UK, whilst EU nationals that have lived in the UK for 3 years, get home rates.

This is going to cost me over £160k in additional fees, and no 'loans'.

No. You can't even get it for your fourth year of a course.
