23/24 year Daughter lived at home 9 months then studied in london

Well... you are not really asking a question, so I'm going to answer this in general terms...I hope you will find it helpful.

If your daughter is under the age of 24 and a full-time student, being away from school still counts as living with you.  If she didn't pay more than half of her support, you may claim her as your dependent. 

Once she is 24 and older, her gross income must be less than $4050 for the year and you must pay more than half of her support in order to be able to claim her as your dependent.

As to studying in London... If she is your dependent and if she studies at a qualified education institution, you may deduct her education expenses. However, please be sure that the foreign school you son attended is a qualified educational institution for education tax credit purposes. A qualified school is any college, university, or other post-secondary educational institution eligible to participate in a student aid program Administered by the U.S. Department of Education.  Most foreign schools are not.  Please refer to the  U.S. Federal Student Aid link to check if your university is a qualified educational institution for tax education purposes.
