    Hi, currently I am studying in Hong Kong due to my mother's work. I am in Year 12, but I have lived in England since I was 14 and my dad still lives in England also.

    Will Unis still treat me like a home applicant, like I have just applied from the UK or not?

    Thank you!

    Usually in that situation you would be regarded as a 'home' applicant but it is up to the uni to decide. You will need to check with each of your possible choices what their view would be.

    Hi, thank you so much for the reply

    Should I contact the individual admission offices to find out?

    And will I be compared to UK standards or international standards because I feel that international applicants are very competitive.

    You'll be judged by uni standards - there isn't a difference. The quota for home applicants was lifted a few years ago; there never was one for international applicants.

    You will need to talk to the admissions people but obviously would be best to leave it for a couple of weeks.
