Studying as a citizen but not a resident

Are there any specific conditions that have to be met if you want to apply to university as a British citizen but you are not a resident? For example: do you have to be a resident for a certain length of time before you can apply to university and not pay overseas tuition?

Hi Frankie,

Three years is the usual residence requirements. Look at:
www.gov.uk/student-finance/who-qualifies

Universities decide about fee status on a case by case basis. In making their decisions they use case law and guidelines as well as information supplied by the applicant, but there are exceptions to the general rules.

See here for more informational about studying in the www.thecompleteuniversityguide.co.uk/international.../

Best of luck,
CUG
