    so I've just finished Y11...I know it's way too early to think about admission etc but I'm sorry I can't leave a question unanswered that is my personality x.x

    So yes I'm from non EU country, studying in EU country, I did GCSEs and will have completed A levels at a British school ran by British ambassador.

    What am I considered as? International student because of my nationality? EU student because of my address? UK student because I will have done British education for 5 years?
    I think I'm international student but I want to be sure. Thanks.

    You're an international student

    If you aren't a British citizen you're an international student.

    This is very complicated and will depend on your family's status in the EU country in which you are living.

    What do you mean by status?
    Well my father has work visa or whatever it's called and I have worker's family visa or something like that. We've lived in France for 3 years and will have lived 5 years by the end of my A levels

    Then it will depend on whether you're counted as an EU national (or whether your fathers work visa would also give you the right of permanent residence in the UK).

    http://www.ukcisa.org.uk/Internation...her-Education/ explains the categories of people eligible for home fees - it is a combination of visas, nationality and residence. While you fulfil the residence requirements unless you're a UK of EU national then you're unlikely to be classed as home.

    Eh it's quite complicated isn't it...
    I guess I'm international student then uh..the expensive fees here come :cool:
    I don't have permanent resident visa yet it takes like 10 years in this country or I have to marry with French citizen which is unlikely at age of 16! lol!
