    I was just wondering if most international students get accepted because we pay 2-3x the amount of money home students do. I know there's a quota/cap on the number of international students a uni takes but have any of the international applicants on TSR actually been rejected by a uni?

    Why? Are you applying for Medicine?

    If not then assuming you meet, or are likely to meet, the entry requirements you will be fine.

    No, I've already got my offers. I was just wondering if the unis are more likely to be slightly more lenient towards international students cause they pay higher tuition fees.
