My daughter wants to apply to university however we’re in a dilemma and seeking some advice and clarity on residency eligibility and what she will qualify for. I’m a UK citizen and she has indefinite leave to remain. She lived in the UK previously but had to return to our country due to my job in the armed forces. She returned to settle permanently back in July 2018. She is presently working but wants to starts university this year. From what I’ve read she meets two of the eligibility criteria but not the 3 year ordinarily resident one the first day at the start of the course. Does she qualify for any student finance {albeit as an international student or home student} ? Or should she wait until she reaches the 3 year which will be next year July. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Surely she qualifies for student finance as an international student seeing as she hasn't lived here for the last 3 years?

Are you in the UK Armed Forces or, despite being a UK citizen, in some other Armed Forces? I thought that usually overseas postings for Armed Forces personnel and FCO etc, including their dependents, didn't count as being non-resident.

I am in the UK armed forces. My draft/posting was on a ship which was deployed not a land draft therefore my daughter couldn't accompany me. During this time she returned home where she completed her secondary education and college. All the while I was fighting the home office for her to return as they refused her application for settlement which was eventually overturned.

I was told the rest of the world also had a 3 yr qualifying criteria even for international fee, which doesn’t make sense. In which case it’s best to wait and be eligible for home fees. Can anyone clarify this?
