I've spoken to a few international students and they seem to have been offered places at competitive universities, for example Exeter, even though the departments don't often look at applications until after the UCAS deadline in January - especially for the oversubscribed courses, like English.
Does it mean that the applications of international students are looked at differently? Or were they just really strong candidates who the university were confident about?
Do international students ever get earlier offers? Watch

It stands to reason that international students' applications are different from that of home students, though I don't know how quotas (if they exist) work, and how much freedom the schools have in selecting students.
All offers are overloaded with the statement "overseas fees status".
In some instances we pay over 4x more fees per year.
Even so, home students are given offers quite early (as seen on these forums) too, and not given higher offers than international students (so it probably isn't "harder" for home students to get offers).
