I sent the fee assessment questionnaire ages ago and then 1 week after i receive an offer and it says i'll be charged home fees. This was back in January and today I receive a letter and it says I didn't send the fee assessment on the 21 day period when I did and it also says they'll be charging me international fees! JESUS CHRIST! I rang them up and they said they'll give me a call back once the student service admin is here.. dude, WTF!? This is screwed... IM SCREWED! AM I!?

I have no idea. Well, last year when we were filling out the UCAS form, I accidentally put I was settled in the UK so I guess I got sent the fee assessment for that reason. Filled it out anyway and now I get a letter saying I'll be charged with international fees... I need to ring UCAS and tell them to change my residence is it? to British born... because obviously, I'm British born. Ha.

I'm sure it's a misunderstanding. I was being told I was a Scotsman who immigrated to Singapore at one point by Newcastle.

Lol... wow. It sucks, these misunderstandings don't it? Well I rang UCAS and they changed it to UK/EU National on the "resedential" bit... I think I'll ring SHU again.

No. I'd never even step foot in Scotland or Singapore when the claim was made.
