If I was not eligible for student finance, would the uni of nottingham change my UK status to international, as they say their criteria is the same? I currently have UK home fee status on my offer letter.

it depends if you are actually international?

Ie i am a home student, as i live here, but ineligble for student finance (as i have an exisiting degree). So i pay the home student fee of £9250, not the much higher International fee of £20kpa.

So there are differences between home and international student status.

Your fee status, (as determined by the uni), and your eligiblity for student finance are seperate matters.

Notts won't revisit your status now unless information came to light that you application was incorrect or misleading in some way.

as a uk citizen, i assumed i would be taking finance. the only “misleading” aspect i can think of is that on my ucas the section for funding was put as possibly UK student funding. if i choose not to do this would that be considered misleading? what if i didn’t apply for student finance at all?

Then you would need to pay the UK tuition fee rate to the university yourself. That doesn't change your residency status. If you have been resident in the UK for the last three years before the course then you will normally be considered a home fees status student, whether you apply to SFE for funding or not. As stated previously the your residency status for determining your fee level and your eligibility for SFE funding (or whether you use such funding) are entirely separate.

No, that wouldn’t be grounds for revisiting your fee status. Notts ultimately don’t care how you fund your studies, regardless of what you declared on your UCAS application. They’ll present you with an invoice for tuition fees and it’s up to you where those funds come from.

Remember lots of UK students don’t take out student finance, they’ll just be bankrolled by Mum and Dad. It doesn’t mean they weren’t eligible for finance or home fees.
