I was born in the UK in 2001, and I am a UK Passport holder. When I was about 2 I moved overseas where I have lived until the present-day apart from living in a British overseas territory for a year. 
I live with a single parent, who is on a 2-year temporary renewable contract ( and has been throughout all my time overseas). I Understand that student finance England will evaluate loan eligibility case by case. Prooving that my stay overseas was of a temporary nature is of most importance. My question is: Although I lived overseas for most of my life will it still be possible to prove that my stay there was temporary and so that I was ordinarily resident 3 years prior to the start date of the course? :#
The evidence I believe I have, is as follows:
  • My parent is on a temporary contract
  • My Parents are UK nationals
  • One of my parents and my sibling ( and the rest of my family) reside and work in the UK 
  • I have regularly visited the UK
  • My family have maintained the family home for the period I spent overseas.
Thank you very much to anyone that can help!!! :)
