Should we move three years before starting uni?
Residence is more important than citizenship and residence for the sole purpose of education does not count. But I think it might be possible for your son to make a case for Home fees if the family is resident in the UK for the three years prior to starting university.
It is the universities that decide fees status based on case law, national guidelines and the information you supply to them.
Hope this helps,
