Whether or not the student is still considered a resident of his home country is flexible. He is considered a resident of both places, so the only days he can break his fast are the actual travel days.

In summary, the opinion that this class adopts for the breaking of the fast of the traveler is that the traveler starts the day of travel with the intention and the act of fasting, is allowed to break the fast once out of the vicinity of his home area, and is allowed to continue breaking the fast for the duration of the trip, whether or not he knows ahead of time what that duration is. In the case of the prolonged student traveler, however, he is considered a resident of both the study area and his home country and can only break his fast on the days of travel.
