    I understand that in order to pay the lower fees for university, one must be a "home student". My problem is as follows:
    I am currently in year 11, so I should be entering uni in september 2012. I have been living in the uk in 2002, but have an international nationality/passport (Asian).

    When applying in two years time, would I be entitled to this "Home Student" status? Or would I need to also have an "Indefinite Leave to remain" status on my passport?

    You would also need to have 'settled' status; i.e. there are no restrictions on you being in the UK (such as only having temporary leave to remain). So yes, you would need to have an 'Indefinite leave to remain' status.

    It's also worth noting any time spent in the UK purely for education doesn't count (such as if you are at boarding school but still technically live in another country)-just thought I'd mention it in case this is the case.

    Thanks for the reply.

    If I do have the 'settled' status let's say in the second year of my university course, could I only pay the "home" student fees for then onwards? Also, will not being a home student affect my UCAS application procedure in any way (i.e. would I be considered and treated as a international applicant, even though I was educated in the UK since year 4), or is this issue just concerning the student finance?

    No. You have to have settled status from the 1st day of your course (at least that is what I understand from the regulations).

    No idea. Your best bet would be to ask in the money and finance thread.

    So, I will have to pay the full international fee for all the three years?
