Child wanting to go to University in England

Recommended Posts

Hi,  I am struggling to find information in relation to whether my son can study in the UK as a domestic paying student (9500 pounds per year) as opposed to an international student (19500 pounds per year - very expensive!).

. His father and I are English

. He has a British passport

. His father will have lived in the UK for 3 years by the time he starts university (end of 2019/20)

. I am happy to return to the UK with him

I am getting conflicting information from websites.

Appreciate any advice.

My understanding is that you have to be classed as resident to get domestic fees - I've read that the residency requirement is 3 years.

Normally he needs himself to have resided in the UK for three years, however I have seen a number of universities wave the international fees in such circumstances. But it will be trial and error and contacting individual university.  I would say though that if he normally lives with you in Australia then no chance unless you are both back in the UK prior to applicationn

I agree with the above comments.   Perhaps consider the universities you are considering and ask about their enrolment requirements.   I understood their was a residential requirement in the years immediately prior to enrolment.   However things change all the time, and it would be interesting to know the outcome of your research.

My friends daughter is starting a law degree in the UK in September.  They visited 6 universities and not one was willing to treat them as domestic fee paying.
