Qasr salaah for a student studying in another town

Q: If a person leaves his home for a place beyond a safr distance to go and study. His plan is only to remain there for the period of his studies e.g. 4 years. He does not regard the place of study as his home. If he stays in the place of study for less than 15 days, then will he be regarded as a mussafir?

A: Yes, he will be regarded as a musaafir.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
