I live with my parent/guardian(s) and all our household bills are in their name – how do I prove my residence?
We can accept bills in the name of your parent/guardian. If you don’t share a surname, please provide evidence of your relationship (e.g. birth certificate).
I have lived at my current address since I was born – do I have to submit a household bill from the year I was born?
No – we need evidence of your residency for the last three years only.
I have moved house twice in the last three years – do I have to send a bill from the beginning and end of each period of time spent in each property?
No, one bill from each property will suffice, but make sure one is recent (from the last three months) and one is from three years ago or more.
On page 2, I am asked if I have indefinite leave to remain in the UK – what does this mean?
If you don’t know, then that probably means you don’t have it! A very small number of non-UK/EU nationals have indefinite leave to remain in the UK/EU, and these people might qualify as a Home student. If you’re not sure, you probably aren’t one of these people!
If you do not currently, at this moment, hold indefinite leave to remain you must tick no. This is not related to applying for a visa to study in the future, it is asking about what visas or permission you hold today.
I’m collecting my supporting evidence, but it’s taking a while – can I submit my form late?
No - please submit the form by 3rd November, including whatever supporting evidence you have available at that time. Please list the documents that you intend to submit in the future in the box on page 4, and (if possible) give an idea of when you will submit them.
Can I email it to you?
We would prefer to receive all paperwork by post, if possible. For this, and all other forms, use the following address unless the form states otherwise: Admissions Office, Peterhouse, Cambridge, CB2 1RD
