    Yes I'm serious. I've been living in Thailand with my family, I've not been in the UK for 3-4 years now due to conscription. I thought the deadline was around March :/

    some universities might still accept a late application, but ask before you apply.

    You're not doomed, especially if you're an international applicant. The deadline for equal consideration was January 15th, so you have missed it - and this means unis don't have to consider your application. But many unis will still consider you. You'll need to contact unis before applying to see if they have spaces and are open to applciants.

    Email them rather than use a facebook message, i presume you're applying for a course that doesnt interview. If you live in Thailand have you sorted how you'll pay international fees?

    I'll be using student finance uk. I'm dual national British Thai.

    To prove I am coming back to the UK and be elegible for a loan, I need to show flight details, evidence of family members and myself in Thailand, letter of conscription from the government office (it's in Thai so dunno how they will read it and I got defferred from joining because I'm mixed not full.), send evidence of my two passports and my Thai id. Unsure of what else can used for evidence to prove I'm not going to run away after I graduate.

    My cousin had a child and got married so I'll show photos of that, problem is that I'm not in any of them.

    Dual nationality won't matter, it's your 3 year residency you'll have to prove, you best call them to clear up what evidence they'll accept, they can be very strict on this sort of thing.

    Have you actually checked what is required, though? Random photos of a wedding are not going to be accepted. Based on this thread, I would be very surprised if you are eligible to be considered as a home student.

    As Claire has been saying, it's residency not nationality that matters. Have you actually lived in the UK for the last 3 years, if not you are likely to be classed as International.
