In need of help/advice

Me and my brother are considered British citizens, but We've spent the majority of our life outside of UK and Europe as a whole.
My family has been lately facing a few issues and complications which i wont be getting much into since it is not that relevant with what i am about to say. So I think some members of my family might be possibly moving to uk soon. And financially speaking, i think there may be some challenges ahead.
My brother will be graduating this year from highschool, and he will be possibly getting his results either around the end of June or at the start of July. However, based on what i know :
- You can't apply to universities after July, so you might have to wait until the year after comes.
- As a British citizen who has been living their life outside of UK. You have to confirm your residency (either by proving that you've spent half of your life there or wait 3 years) so you can get student financial aid.

I'd appreciate if anyone could help me get a better understanding if I'm mistaken about anything or if anyone knows about any service or any advice that can help with the situation regarding my brother.
And thanks in advance.

Hey,

The UK gov site is quite helpful. I've pasted the relevant links underneath, I recommend reading them as you have a the full knowledge of your residency situation.

UCAS Deadlines
If you miss the 31 January 2024 deadline for most other courses, you may still be able to apply after the deadline has passed. Universities and colleges often consider applications received after the 31 January deadline if spaces are available, but you risk missing out on your top choice if it’s popular. Any applications not submitted by 30 June 2024 at 18:00 will automatically be entered into Clearing.
