ditto weirdo, please tell us!
lol... well, once the uni give you an offer they don't have the right to take it away, so I just wrote several e-mails, and filled in the home-status forms extra carefully... I included stuff like a "working temporarily in dubai" booklet, a temporary contract from my dad's company (he doesn't really have a contract - he manages the company, so he wrote the letter himself , then got the owner of the comapny to sign it), and lists of every single date, since 1896, that I've been back to england
we have a house in england too, but we don't pay taxes.

Anyway, people who would be living in the UK/EU if it were not for one of their parents working "temporarily" overseas, are usually given home status... I just had to kinda work my way around that, coz I've never even lived in england, and my parents have lived in the UAE for about 28 year!

I got there in the end 5 offers so far, so it was all worth it...

Anybody out there that declared themselves to as "overseas fees" status, as easier to get in, but could have qualified for domestic fees? I wonder if this is common.
This does happen. It is particularly rife at my school amongst students from Hong Kong. The majority of them can easily afford the difference between home and international fees. Some even try and get their fee status changed having received their offers!! Personally, I think a university has every right to withdraw a candidate's offer if they try and reclassify themselves.

I don't care what other people think... I've ended up with whats best for me! I'm British, and I can't help that I live overseas, so I feel that I have the right to be granted home status... and I have been!

And I just got the 8 and 9 the wrong way round.. sorry!
