Dear Student Finance England,
I am an EU student who has been living, studying full-time and working part-time in the UK since 1 September 2018. I would like to take a gap year and apply for an undergraduate course for 2021/22 entry. I am aware that the government has not yet confirmed the fee status and loan eligiblity for 2021 EU applicants yet, but I am wondering if I'd qualify for home fees at that point in time regardless. My circumstances are as follows:
1. I am a citizen of an EU country and had been living in that country prior to 1 September 2018.
2. On 1 September 2018, I moved to the UK to receive full-time education, but I did not return to my home country for any significant amount of time since. I've always been employed, too.
3. Throughout the academic years 2018/19 and 2019/20, I have been in full-time education and I have also been working part-time. I am a resident in the UK and have not returned to my home country for summer etc.
4. I am looking to take a gap year in the next academic year (2020/21) and apply to an undergraduate course in Autumn 2020.
Should my application be successful, by the time I'd start the course (01 September 2021), I will have completed exactly three years of ordinary residency in the UK. I know that during those years, I was also in full-time education, but according to UKCISA's website, as an EU national this would not stop me from qualifying for home fees? (See below)

I am not sure if I got the policy right. I would really appreciate your advice on my situation!
Thank you in advance for your time and stay safe.

Hi there, we are not able to confirm eligibility for the 21/22 academic year. The Brexit transition period ends on the 31/12/2020 so we should have more information available on the 21/22 academic year sometime early next year. You can speak to the universities to see if they will be charging you home or international fees.
Thanks, Isaac.
