I'm trying to find a way to finance my education. I currently hold a BA from an American university and live in the UK with my UK spouse. I hold ILR and will have been in the UK for 3 years in December 2014, at which time I plan to apply for UK citizenship.
I want to become a vet. I am aware that I am eligible for home student fees after I have been here for 3 years, so I'm hoping to go back to school within a few years.
According to the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, since I already hold a Bachelors degree, I am not eligible for UK student loans to cover tuition fees (since veterinary degrees are undergraduate degrees here - they won't finance you to get a second Bachelors degree).
So, I was wondering if I can pay home student fees at a UK school and use US federal student aid to pay for it. Does the fact that I am a UK resident, US citizen prevent me from using US student aid?
