Fees and funding for Australian students

Hello, just wondered if you could direct me to a website or office where I can find out information for the following question:
We are British citizens (by birth) but have been living in Australia for the past 10 years, we will be returning to the UK to live and work in June 2015 where our two sons are hoping to attend university. Are you able to supply me information as to what fees we will need to pay or can they apply for any grants?
Answered by Alison Patterson
The general rule is that your sons should be resident for three years. Universities have the discretion to make a determination about fees status based on information that you will be asked to provide.
Check the UKCISA site at:

Please bear in mind that the rules vary a little depending on whether you are looking at universities in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
