I have received an offer from UoB a few weeks ago, and ever since one thought has been nagging me: the fact that I have been classified as an overseas student, and not a 'home' (whether EU home or not).
I have moved to the UK at the start of year 12, and I am now year 13. Year 11 in British school years, as well as the rest of my life, has been spent in a EU country which has been part of the EU for longer than 3 years (in case that matters). To be quaified for the fee status of Home EU/UK/EEA, one would have had to either live 3 consecutive years prior to applying in a EU/EEA nation, OR live 3 consecutive years prior to applying in the UK.Conveniently, the website for how the fee status of one is determined, has taken down that very page: http://www.ukcisa.org.uk/International-Students/Fees--finance/Home-or-Overseas-fees/ Either way, considering the fact that Birmingham labelled me as overseas, and interpreting the law on the source I have given to the letter, I suppose it is safe to assume that there is no way to change the fee status?I have not emailed the university as the last time I emailed them they needed one month and a half to get back to me.
Any help would be very much appreciated! Thank you!
