    I think LSE favours international students, in my school in Hong Kong getting into LSE is very common, of course you have to be above-average needless to say.

    I dont think that they're preferred cos they pay more, cos the uni aren't getting any extra money. Sure the international students are paying a lot more than UK students..but that's only because the UK government aren't paying the rest of it that all UK students are entitled to....the fee code we enter on the UCAS form indicates whether or not the government pay most of our fees for us.

    I would imagine that is HIGHLY unusual, even their lowest offers according to most stat tables is ABB for international relations I think.

    Unis will probably be taking on more international students in the next few years unless the govt can push through the £3000 fees as they;re becoming strapped for cash. Dillema, eh?

    well... My family all moved in and i ve been here for only 2 years.
    That's why I am paying that much. However on Ucas form I did write that thing.. um... you know LEA thing.

    Does it mean I still get support from my county ?

    I'm not entirely sure...on mine i entered "02 LEA", which i think means i'm entitled to government support. My friend moved here from Korea about 2 years ago as well...and he has to pay the full uni fees too.

    Lol! Thought not!

    Unis might prefer international applicants....but not because of fees they pay. I would've thought that the reason offers to international students are lower is because there's less competition for places from international students...can anyone confirm????

    Hello, really interesting what you are saying! I applied to Durham to read Law last year as well, and I got a 32 IB point offer, whereas all my other friends were rejected! This year I am no longer an international student because poland is entering the EU, and I applied to Durham again and they rejected me although I actually got 44 IB Points!!!
    Isn't that weird?

    I think that universities have quotas on the numbers of international students they are allowed on a course - it's something like 10% of the total, so don't worry about your application being dropped in favour of a full-fee-paying international student. As for why the offers are lower, I'm not so sure... :confused:
