Travelling absence

Jan 2019

I’m a British citizen planning on travelling to Australia and Asia for about a year and a half before studying for a master's degree. Will this affect my ability to be charged home student fees rather than as an international student?

Answer

Temporary absence should not affect your ordinary residence in the UK. You need to keep your flight details to show you have booked return passage to the UK and other receipts that prove the temporary nature of your absence from the UK. I suggest you contact your student finance awards agency for their confirmation. Other useful information may be found on our student finance eligibility page.
