No chance. They are adults and have to qualify as adults with 5 years Residence and meet all the same requirements an adult needs to meet. There is no shortcut route for them unfortunately.Do you think there is a possibility they can apply for UK Citizenship in their own right after having the 1 year of ILR?
The nationality is irrelevant for the purposes of university fee classification. Whether they’re a British citizen or a foreign national with ILR, the requirement to be ordinarily resident 3 years prior to the start of the academic course applies. My brother went through this process a few years ago.jons1 wrote: ↑Mon Mar 01, 2021 8:54 pm
It wouldn't be a massive issue to wait for the 3 more years except for the fees for University for the eldest he will have another year (3 year residency rule) to be able to go to University as a home fees student which I find quite unfair. I appreciate it is about subsidising UK citizens and I am all the more for that, however, currently the eldest is on Universal Credit with not many job prospects. I don't understand why he is allowed that (which is good for him at the moment) but then disadvantaging him massively by going to university £60k in fees that will help benefit the UK economy in the future!
No, because, for anybody applying on or after their 18th birthday, there is a mandatory (i.e. can't be disregarded by the Home Office/no discretion) requirement of being physically present in the UK at the start of the five year period immediately preceding the date of application.
