Home fee status for BN(O) students after 3 years continuous stay in the UK
We believe the UK Government's policy requiring five-year residency for BN(O) visa holders for home fee status for tuition is unfair, and that home fee status should be available after 3 years continuous stay in the UK.
Residency requirements for home fees have been previously found in breach of the European Convention on Human Rights in at least one Scottish case. We contend that the current rules for BN(O) visa holders, requiring continuous stay for at least five years in the UK, are inconsistent with human rights principles. Our petition calls for equal treatment and the amendment of regulations in a way which we believe would better align with ECHR standards.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
