Studying overseas is a great investment in your future, although it’s important to understand the costs involved and the funding options available before you start.
As a student at the University of Lincoln, you will be required to pay tuition fees for each year of your course. Depending on the type of programme and study level, the cost of tuition can vary. For information on specific course fees, please see individual course pages.
To help you manage the cost of your tuition fees, there are a range of instalment options and payment methods available, however these can vary depending on your student 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:
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.
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.
