    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?

    And 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?

    You need to have been granted settled status by the home office before you start your course in order to be eligible for student finance for any part of the course so I imagine your uni will use the same guidelines for 'home fee' status.

    There are not many rules that allow you to become eligible part way through a course as far as I know (EEA/EU 'migrant worker' status is the only one I can think of and that won't apply to you)
