    I have a friend who wants to apply to uni for 2005 entry but she is worried about funding. Basically her parents emigrated to Oz 3 years ago and are citizen there now. She however is getting her dual nationality at the moment but is coming back to the UK in feb. (she doesnt really want to live in Oz but realised it was stupid to pass up the opportunity to get dual citizenship espec with her parents there).
    She has lived in the UK all her live except for the 9 months she ihas to spend in Oz this year. Her parents cant afford to pay tuition fees from OZ and she is worried she wont get a full loan.
    I thought that cause she is a UK citizen she could be treated as an independant student.
    Does anyone have any similiar experiences or advice?

    it's not just about being british. you NEED to have lived permanently in the united kingdom for the last two years, not primarily for educational purposes.

    it's something about being habitually resident here, which would entitle her to home tuition fees.

    Yeah, maybe if she taps her shoes together, she'll be whisked off to Australia.

    i don’t think there’s no point starting a new thread. A friend of mine wants to know if she has to alert the student loans people to the fact she’s changed her course and university. Her support notification states her university is Bristol but following august 19th she’s going to her insurance instead - St Andrews to study maths and history. Who does she have to contact about that? Her local LEA?

    Or print off the CO1 form from http://www.studentfinancedirect.co.uk/ , fill it in and send it off to her local LEA ASAP.

    Edit: Here's the link to the form:
    http://www.studentsupportdirect.co.u...p_calledfrom=1

    The address of your local LEA should be on most of the letters you've recieved from them regarding you application for student finance, if you can't find them it's on the website: http://www.studentsupportdirect.co.u...chema=PROTOCOL
