I am a 22 years old EU national, starting my course in Sep 2016 and been resident in the UK since 2012. I was asked to send in some evidence as proof of me being in the UK 3 years prior my course start date.
The residency information form says that the evidence needs to be original and that utility bills are accepted.
As I am a eco-conscious individual, like many of us, I have opted out of paper billing a while ago. I have requested my phone company to send me the bills in a paper format, going back to 2012 as requested.
But today I spoke to a SFE advisor on the phone and was told that the assessor has not accepted it as they are 'duplicates'...
Duplicate means a copy of something. As I have never received these bills in a paper format, how on Earth can they be duplicates?
Also, they are all on letter headed paper and were sent by Three mobile.
Was the assessor right to not accept this evidence? Are there any clear guidelines available for what can be and cannot be accepted and what is deemed a duplicate?
Which unis have sent theirs?
