Default Children of UK citizens born in the US

Lets say you are a UK citizen living in the US, and you have children born in the US who are dual US/UK passport holders. If they want to go to college/university in the UK (unlikely but anything is possible), do they get treated as International students in the UK? What are the requirements to be treated as a domestic for citizens outside the country?

Any info would be useful

International v domestic for the purposes of paying tuition at British* universities is based on residence, not nationality. In other words if you are British, born and raised in the UK, and take your 14 year old child, also born and raised in the UK, to live in the US, four years later when they apply for universal in the UK they will be treated as an international student. .... Under most circumstances - there are a few exceptions.

So if you have a child born in the US there, IMO, almost no chance of you getting them accepted as a domestic student in the UK ..... unless you took them to live in the UK for, IIRC, three years before they apply.

* I am not sure about Scottish uni's, they may have different rules.

Note that in the US, tuition rate is also determined by state residency for public universities - there is no national "domestic" rate. If your son or daughter moves to another state a few weeks before the uni year starts they will certainly be classed as "out of state" and pay that rate. As US Citizens they would not be charged the international rate but unless bona fide residents for about a year beforehand in that particular state, they would be charged out-of-state tuition (this is for public universities).
