    Hi guys, sort of new to the Student Room, so forgive me if I'm not doing things right.
    So basically a few days ago I received an offer from Imperial, but they put me down as an Overseas student.

    I was born in the UK, but because of my parents' business I moved around and I came back here in 2011.
    I'm the only one in the family with a British passport, my dad now lives in Asia, and I now live in England with my brother and mum.
    I stayed in England (and didn't move to Asia with my dad) because I felt like sticking with my brother and also because it was going to be easier for my family if I stayed here anyway.

    So, my question is, do you think I'm well eligible for Home Student fees?
    The Imperial College fee status guidance notes state that I "have not been resident in the UK during any part of that three-year period wholly or mainly for the purpose of receiving full-time education."
    I mean, sure I could've gone back to Asia with my dad, but how do I explain to Imperial that me staying here in the UK was not for educational purposes?

    The key is what you have been doing in that three years prior to the start of your study.

    It's best if you submit an assessment to Imperial
