Hi, my friend's in a very serious complicated situation. Ill try to explain very shortly. Basically, they have applied for Indefinite leave to remain visa but got rejected and were given the right to appeal and have appealed. They have an unconditional offer from the university, however, cannot finalise the process as they cannot be a UK student since they don't have residency or citizenship, however, the uni have said that they cannot continue with the visa for international student without their papers which are still currently at the Home Office and because they're currently in the appeal. When they appealed, their solicitor said that they would still be able to go to uni, however, this was last year. They have tried to get in contact with their solicitor recently to see what they have to say about it now that it's nearer the time, although the solicitor has not replied. If there's anyone who can help with the situation (hopefully you can sort of understand what's happened), that would be great. And they have already taken a gap year because of this, they do not want another gap year.
Thanks

Not enough information. Anyone would need more information. the correct person is their former solicitor or get your case transferred to a new immigration lawyer.
You dont say upon what nasis this person is in the UK and what the reasons for rejection are. If they ,lose the appeal then they may lose their right to be in the UK at all, unless they can get a new visa.

If they dont wnat another gap year then they need to chase the solicitor or find out from the border agency how long its going to take for the appeal. Presumably the solicitor is handling that? I'd be interested to see on what basis the solicitor told your friend they could still be a student. Are they a refugee?

No they are not a refugee, they have been living in the UK for 8 years, they have attended school, been through the whole process of secondary school, college and UCAS, able to get an unconditional offer. I cannot disclose all of the information. I have provided with as much as I can.
edit: their parent has been in the UK for more than 10 years which is why they applied for indefinite leave to remain and the 'independent with a work permit' with their child(my friend) being the dependants, if you understand.

Sorry I cant give any advice except to see their solicitor or if you cant contact them, then find another one. Anyone would have to appreciate their full situation and see the ruling as to why they were rejected. Try

This sounds like quite a complicated situation, and your friend is probably best discussing things with their solicitor and the uni. UKCISA (http://www.ukcisa.org.uk/Our-services) may be able to help as well.

Student visas are usually not too difficult to get, so it may be best for them to withdraw their appeal, apply for a student visa, then go for indefinite leave to remain once they have the student visa. However, I am not an immigration law specialist, so there may be implications to this I'm not aware of, and your friend really does need specialist advice.
