Tuition Fee Status

In the UK, university students are classified as either Home, European Union (EU), Channel Islands or Overseas students in relation to the cost of tuition fees.

Your student status, and therefore the level of tuition fee you are required to pay, is determined by your nationality and the country where you usually live.

To qualify for Home/EU student status, the main eligibility criteria are to either have:

  • UK/EU citizenship/nationality and have been domiciled in the UK for three years prior to the first day of the first year of your academic course (the main reason for residing in the UK must not have been for the purpose of full-time education)
  • Or been granted refugee status by the Government
  • Or been granted ‘indefinite leave to remain’, ‘discretionary leave to remain’ or ‘humanitarian protection’ by the UK Home Office and been domiciled in the UK and Islands since having been granted that status
  • Or UK/EU citizenship/nationality and have been domiciled in the European Economic Area (EEA) for three years prior to the first day of the first year of your academic course (the main reason for residing in the EEA must not have been for the purpose of full-time education).

This list is not exhaustive. A detailed schedule of the categories into which students can be classed as Home, EU or Overseas status can be found on the UK Council for International Student Affairs website.

Decisions on Your Student Fee Status

An initial decision on your student fee status will be made based on information you provide as part of your application. If you do not meet the criteria, or you do not provide sufficient information to be classed as a Home or EU student, you will be classed as an overseas student for tuition fee purposes. If you believe this to be incorrect, you will be asked to complete a fee assessment questionnaire as part of the admissions process.
