There are two requirements to qualify as UK/EU student. First you should have ILR (which you have). 2nd is you should be living here in UK for the last 3 years or more so if you fulfill this requirement then you are eligible to pay UK/EU student fee.

Thanks for your reply. In the letter I received from NCS it was mentioned that they will not be able to process the application unless photo is signed by the referees. I checked the guideline again but can not see anywhere where it says that photo should be signed by referees. SECTION 5: REFEREES &...

What if the letter get lost? It's not completely unlikely if it's sent 2nd class, and we'll keep waiting until at least the 6th month since application, and by then the 90 days window to the ceremony might have passed! I received the approval letter from HO and a letter from local authority with ce...

Your partner should still be able to pay local fees as long as she is on a dependant visa (not student visa) and she is in UK for at least 3 years. I don't think this statement is correct. Jambo is correct. One can only pay home fees if he/she is free of immigration control (ILR) and also have live...

I would recommend you to contact IPS and get an update from them. Like oscar22 said they are quite friendly and will give you correct information.

need not mention as it was FPN. A bit confuse here. I think CU80 (using mobile whilst driving) does not come under minor offence.

I had my appointment with NCS on 8th of Nov but my application was received by HO on 15th of Nov (after 7 day) but if i would have sent my appliction through spec...
