    Oxford university has confirmed that a potential student who is waiting for permission to stay in the UK will be allowed to defer his place.

    Brian White, risked missing the start of his degree course because his application to stay in the UK had not been processed by the Home Office.

    He had been an orphan living in Zimbabwe before he was fostered - and subsequently adopted, by a family from the West Midlands.

    When he settled in the UK with his new parents he was given "limited leave to remain", but an application to become a British citizen at 18 was turned down by the Home Office.

    According to immigration officials most children adopted abroad are granted citizenship in childhood - and the process becomes more complicated when such children become adults. His case was described as "unique."

    Oxford University told the BBC that Brian White is a "brilliant student" and has confirmed his place will be available whenever he is able to take it up.
