    Hi all

    I've applied to do music at Cardiff Uni amongst other places and today received a very weird email from the admissions department.

    Before you read the email below, I am British, have live in England since I was born and put all the correct student finance details down for loans etc.

    Dear ______

    I am writing in connection with your application for BMus Music at Cardiff University, for entry in academic year 2012/3.

    In order that the matter of your fee status may be resolved and an accurate classification made, please complete the questionnaire on our website at:
    http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/regis/sfs/a...ee-status.html and return this as soon as possible either by email to [email protected] (please mark your email subject as ‘fee questionnaire’), or by post to The Admissions Team, Cardiff University, Floor 2, McKenzie House , 30-36 Newport Road, CARDIFF CF24 0DE.

    Yours sincerely

    If you click on the link, and download the questionnaire (it's 5 pages long) it talks about when you first entered the UK, why you entered the UK, what nationality your parents are....

    Has anyone else had this? My Head of 6th is going to try and find out what's going on?! :confused:

    At a guess, I'd say it would be in connection with the fact that the Welsh Assembly pays the top up fees of Welsh students studying both in England and in Wales, but English students have to pay the full rate to study there. It might just be them checking you're not Welsh!
