Home students are those living in the UK or Republic of Ireland, and EU nationals with settled status in the UK.
In order to be classed as a home student you normally need to meet all of the following criteria on the first day of the first academic year of the course:
- You are settled in the UK (this means there is no immigration restriction on the length of your stay).
- You are ordinarily resident in the UK, and have been for the full three years before the first day of the academic year. (Ordinarily resident means that your main home is in the UK, and you are choosing to live in the UK.)
- The main reason for you being in the UK was not to receive full-time education.
