    My offer from LSE is :

    This offer is subject to you obtaining

    Obtain grades AAA at A level excluding General Studies from

    your June 2010 examinations. Please provide certified

    verification of your English Language qualification by 13

    August 2010. This offer is valid only on the basis of your

    having overseas fee status: it may be reassessed if your fee

    status changes.



    Will I be at a disadvantage if my fee status changes?

    What if I firm LSE and then my fee status changes before 1st September, can they reject me?

    It is usually best to contact them for this kind of issues. If you're fee status is not gonna change, then don't bother.

    It's because they have a quota for home students set by the government. For every home student that they take over the limit, they are fined heavily. So you can understand why they may have to rescind the OP's offer if he/she becomes a home student, can't you? :rolleyes:

    Because the government pays universities per home student as they subsidise the fees of home students. So it benefits home students, as part of their degree is paid for by the government. The government has to set quotas because otherwise they have no control over how big the university budget will be!

    I'm curious as to whether they have that specific line as a condition for home students as well.

    Any home students holding an offer care to share?

    What Frontier said, but also because overseas students pump their tuition fees into the UK economy. More foreign students = more money. Also, more foreign students will cushion the blow of cuts to education spending, because they pay so much more.

    The reason LSE is in a strong position is because the undergraduate programmes at least are bankrolled in a large way by overseas tuition fees
