    I have almost finished my application through UCAS. However, I am a little worried about something: I am not exactly sure what to put as my postal address and what to put as a home address.

    Basically, I will be living with my father, who is in the UK, when I start uni. However, my permanent residence is in Bulgaria. On my university choices, I have marked that I will live at home while studying. I don't want the universities to get the impression that I will travel by plane every day.

    So my question is the following: What should I put in the postal/home address fields?

    Put your postal and home addresses as your permanent residence. That's the address that will matter during your application. You can provide a different address when you start your course.

    Universities generally ignore the "live at home" tick because applicants are generally rubbish at filling it in accurately. It wont be used as part of your application, if you tick it the worst that might happen is they wont send you info on how to apply for halls....but like I say they'll probably ignore it and send you info anyway (you can just not apply for halls if you don't need them)
