    Hi. I was having lunch with a friend last week and I told her that I am paying 11k for international fees and my mother is a UK resident and has leaved her for more than ten years. I was raised in South Africa when my parents separated ten years back. She was surprised why I was paying that much when my sponsor, my mother is a UK resident. By any chance could she be right that I am eligible to pay my fees as a local student?

    Hi, based on this information you might be eligible to pay less fees. However, before any decision is made we will require more details. Can you please email this query to our money advice and fee service on [email protected] and they will look into it for you.

    Regards, Justin

    Thank you Justin, I have just emailed the MAF department. I hope a decision will be reached in my favor 11k is quite a lot to be honest. Thanks again
