My fee status

We are not able to provide advice regarding a person’s potential fee status, or carry out any fee status assessments, before an application has been submitted. Prospective applicants should review the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) guidelines for who pays home fees, or contact the UKCISA advice line for fee status advice.

How is my Fee Status Decided

The University determines the tuition fee status of a student in accordance with legislation set by the Government's Department for Education- the Higher Education (Fee Limit) (England) Regulations 2017 and Education (Fees and Awards) (England) Regulations 2007as to wheter you are classified as Home or Overseas for tuition fees.

The University uses a Fee Status Questionnaire (FSQ) to determine an applicant's fee status and in accordance with guidelines set out by the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA).

If you are a national of any other country or you have lived for a period of time in another country then you will be sent an FSQ as part of the general admissions process. Please refer to Fee Assessment Procedure for Applicants for more information.

If you are a current student

If you are a current student your fee status normally remains for the duration of your programme with the exception of certain circumstances. The regulations for these exceptions have been updated for academic years that start on or after 1st August 2024. However, you will still need to meet all other requirements within any one category of the regulations listed on the UKCISA website.

If you believe you now meet one of the eligibility criteria for home fees, please contact the Fee Status Team and provide details of your change in circumstances and which home category you believe you now satisfy.
