Fee for an English Citizen returning to the UK after 10 years
The admitting university will determine your fee status and university websites state how fees are to be paid.
Read up on eligibility for student finance here:
The rules are that you should have been resident in the UK for the three years immediately prior to starting university to qualify for home fees. (Residence is more relevant than citizenship; it is to do with where the family taxes have been paid.)
Also look at the UKCISA website:
Universities make decisions on fee status after an application has been made through UCAS and the offer of a place on academic grounds has been made.
Hope this helps,
