Default Citizenship question

Please could someone help me? I was born in Zimbabwe but from two years old lived in England and grew up in England. I am now 25. I have an Irish Passport through decent. I studied abroad in South Africa for four years. I need to know if I can apply for citizenship in the Uk since I lived there my whole life apart from the years when I did my degree in South Africa. My parents and sisters all have UK passports.I am now in South Africa gain on a temporary residence visa. Please help.

Regards,

Justine

Do you meet the residence requirement for naturalisation? If not, then you're out of luck, no matter how long you spent in the UK before.

The time to apply for British citizenship was then, not now, it seems.

Unless you're eligible for British citizenship another way ... British born parent, perhaps?
