What does forced migrant mean? 



What will my fee status be for my degree, and can I receive Student Finance funding as a forced migrant? 



I am an Asylum Seeker who is waiting for a decision from the Home Office, can I be Home for fees and receive any Student Finance funding?



I already hold Refugee Status, Humanitarian Protection, Calais Leave, Stateless Leave, Section 67 Leave, Leave as a Victim of Domestic Violence, or Leave under one of the Afghan or Ukraine Schemes, can I be Home for fees and receive Student Finance? 



What if I am granted a different immigration status partway through my degree course? 



What if I am granted Discretionary Leave / Leave outside the Rules (LOTR), or Limited Leave to Remain (through a category such as Right to Family Life)? 



What about the new rules for students who are assessed as ‘overseas’ for fees then acquire Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) during the course? 



What about when I have gained British citizenship? 



Where can I access more support or information?
