女兒於2013年己在英國讀大學, 尚有一年(2015/2016)才畢業. 今年9月剛以by decent资格取得英國護照(她是在我和我太太取得居英權後出世) 請問女兒可否申請減免學费, 手續如何 在此感謝Gary君之前提供资料辦理女兒英國護照?
As we are going to pay the fee for 2015 / 2016 shortly (coming 2 weeks), would the British Citizen Passport adequately support to pay "Home" fee instead of "International fee"
(my daugther has been studing in London for 3 years 12 / 13, 13/14 and 14/15)
Just forget about to claim refund for amount paid for previous years.
Hi, last clarification,
if we only aim to pay "Home" school fee in coming year and not to claim refund for previous years
1. do we need to meet the "3 years settlement" rule?
2. no need to go through the complicated procedures mentioned earlier (e.g contact Home Office, MP ...lawers etc)?

The answers are based on all previous questions and responses.
Your daughter must be reclassified as a UK/EU student first.
Then she must get proof that she is a citizen by descent (which means she is born as a British Citizen). As the school has no idea why she can suddenly become a citizen, even the school is willing to do a refund, she will have to prove that she would have eligible otherwise (due to misclassification).
The Home Office has the following application to confirm:
She should contact the Home Office to see if this letter/certificate will confirm that she is a citizen by descent or not. If so, this would be the proof you need. Otherwise, she will have to use similar document for her passport to show she is indeed a citizen by descent.
Once she has the proof, try to seek help from a MP or Lord. If not, at least a lawyer (even it means legal fee). Don't do it herself unless she exhausts all options.
Remember - she posed herself as an international student. So the school has not done anything wrong. So a refund, if granted, will be discretionary (given all possible refund period should have been expired).
Due to the special circumstances, don't expect frontline staffs are able to assist anything. So it is best she requests the refund in writing, probably registered mail, to avoid the turnaround.
The rest depends on the school if it is willing to exercise any discretion (this is also why I said using a MP/Lord/lawyer will be better).
It should be sufficient, given that the restriction on UK/EU fee only applies to EU nationals or non-EU nationals with settlement status.
1. No - this applies non-British Citizens only.
