    Depends on how long they've lived in the UK and for what purposes this classification is.

    Hi, thanks for your response.
    I now have the full story. A British family now living in Singapore want to send their kids to university in the UK. If they do the last 2 years of school in the UK then they are classified as locals and if not then foreigners?
    What is the criteria for a citizen student to be classified as an international student?
    Will tax have an impact on the student status if the parents do not pay tax in the UK?
    Thanks

    I think the requirement is for students to have spent 3 years or more in the UK before starting uni so I'd say no your kids are international students for fee purposes but the uni will do this assessment when they apply so prepare your evidence.
