    Hey All,

    When I was filling the boxes for the registration, when it asked me for my place of birth I put in my place of birth which was outside the UK and Europe. When I rechecked my application afterwards, I found that Student Finance put my Country of Nationality as United Kingdom, although I am Dutch. Isn't this a problem?

    I have been living here for over 5 years.

    I'd ring SF and ask them, but you won't be disadvantaged by correcting it (if they say that's necessary). As you've been in the UK for 5 years, you'll be assessed as a Home/UK student anyway.

    Yeh I asked some friends and they said it isn't my fault really, and they think that this is the case as, you have mentioned, I lived in the UK for a quite a long period. Thanks
