I am a British citizen and grew up in UK . Had to move to USA for several years for my dads work. Have been back living in UK over a year and got a place at Falmouth this year having completed a years access to education course .
I have now been told not only will I be classed as an international student , I also will not receive any UK government funding and even when My status changes while on the course I will stay international and have to find an extra £16,000.00 in fees ...... this is obviously impossible for me to do . I have reached out to several people at the Uni but reply is same ....you have to wait another two years to be considered UK student ......any help or advice would be so welcome . Thank you.

That is perfectly correct. If your father paid tax as a UK resident whilst he was working in the States you may have an argument that the whole family remained resident in the UK.

As above said.
How many years were you abroad? Do you have proof that it was just a temporary move?

Unless you moved away because your father was in the Armed Forces or Foreign Office, ie posted abroad by the government, then fee eligibility is by residence, not nationality alone.

We were there for 7years . Thanks for replies , how on earth do I get funding as the USA won't give me funding as I no longer am a resident and the uk government won't give me funding ?

Unfortunately, you will have to wait 2 more years before you will be eligible for funding. There really isn't any way round that.
