For what it's worth - british citizenship doesn't have any bearing on which level of fee you pay - it's all based on whether or not you have been ordninarily resident in the UK or EEC for the 3 years prior to the start of your course for purposes other than to attand an educational institution.
just had a pondering based on this (not imminent enough to be trawling official literature etc. just yet & wondered if you could help, PQ? )

basically, what defines 'ordinarily resident'?

the boyf has British passport, but also greencard & parents live in the USA - although schooled in this country from 7-18 this makes him an overseas, so obviously he pays those fees currently.

will he then become 'ordinarily resident' here from 3 years after his graduation if he stays here? or will the 3 years start from matric? given he's registered to vote here, has had jobs, stays here most holidays etc. or is it still considered that he's here solely to 'attend and eductional institution'?

just wondering for post grad funding implications etc. :p:


30k a year renting a house? What world is this person in?!
i did wonder that..! :eek:

Surely they are taking the mick? If they seriously can afford 30k/year for accommodation they don't live in the world 99.99% of people live in and they won't get anything out of university - too busy hiring and firing butlers.

600/week....sure they didn't mean 50-60 a week?

Hopefully they will come and post I am interested.

yes, I will have to pay international fees which comes to about 11,000 annually. And were you referencing my proposed 600wk for rent?

Unbelievable! Well, firstly you won't experience university. You will be forced to live alone - no students I know can afford that a month let alone a week, people spend from £35 to £70 a week, not £600. It worries me that if you think that a sum of money like that isn't greedy then you will never understand what I am talking about, nor many others so what's the point?

Trust me, have a budget of £50/week and you will enjoy yourself a lot.

I'm sorry you feel that way. I am far from greedy - actually quite giving!! I simply want to live in the nicest area and I don't want flat mates. however, I'm sure I will still have lots of fun.

Erm, the nicest area? 600? Not greedy?! Which city is in question? Even the best places in London wouldn't be after much more than that I suppose. A good area in most cities would be secured with £55 or so, for a one bedroom place up to £100 if you want to live in a abit of luxury.

£600 is greedy however much you "give"

A two bedroom flat in south ken, knightsbridge, notting hill, or chelsea most definitely costs 400 plus per month. I'll need one bedroom for sleeping and one to set up as a study. Come on... be nice!!
