My fee status

How is my Fee Status Decided

The University determines the tuition fee status of a student in accordance with UK Government legislation - the Education (Fees and Awards) Regulations 2007 (Statutory Instrument No. 779) states that students who are classified as 'overseas' may be charged a higher level of fee than those classified as Home students.

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.

2021/22 entry onwards

The UK government announced that for 2021/22 entry EU, other EEA and Swiss nationals will no longer be eligible for home fee status and financial support from Student Finance England and will be charged the overseas rate, except where they have protected rights under the EU Withdrawal Agreement.
