    Hi, found this, should help

    "Home UK students
    In order to qualify as a home UK student, you must meet all of the following criteria:


    You must be ‘settled’ in the UK and Islands (the Islands means Channel Islands and the Isle of Man) on the ‘first day of the first academic year of the course’
    AND

    You must also have been ‘ordinarily resident’ in the UK for the full three year period before the ‘first day of the first academic year of the course’
    AND

    The main purpose for your residence in the UK and Islands must not have been to receive full-time education during any part of this three year period. For the LSE the ‘first day of an academic year of the course’ is 1 September. "


    Sometimes admissions staff can be a bit dozy, so continually remind them that you are applying as a home student. You will likely have to provide some proof that you have been resident in the UK for X amount of years, probobly with bank statements, bills, NI number etc.

    Have fun at Uni,

    if you have legally lived in the UK for 13 years you probably have the right to have permanent residence permit in the UK.

    if you are sure that you are settled - which by immigration terms means having the right to live in the UK with no time limit - then yes you are home student.

    It might be worth while getting on the phone and having a firm conversation with the admissions staff that are giving you offers as an Int. student. I'm not suggesting anything underhand on the part of the Universities, but the difference to them between an undergrad home student and an undergrad international student is about £20,000 over three years.

    <edit> based on home fees at £3,xxx per year and int. fees at £9,xxx per year

    ok it might sound rude, i didnt mean to, but living in the UK doesnt necessarily give you the right to go to unis as a home student . trust me, im international and ive done as much research as possible about that so i should know what im talking about
