Fee status

Your fee status category will affect the tuition fees that you will pay, and also your scholarship eligibility.

As part of the admissions process, we will need to identify your fee status. We will assign all students to one of the following categories:

  • Home
  • International

To find out the tuition fees for different fee status groups, please look at the individual course information page, which you can find through our undergraduate course listing and postgraduate course listing.

In most cases, we are able to assign your fee status using the information on your application. However, in some cases, we will need to ask you some further questions.

You can find out more about fee status from the UKCISA website.

How has Brexit affected tuition fees?

Following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, EU students are no longer eligible to pay Home fees and will pay the same fees as other international students. This change applies to students starting a course from 1 August 2021. Those who started their course before this date are not affected, and continue to pay Home fees if they have met the eligibility criteria.

EU nationals and their family members may still be eligible for Home fees in certain circumstances, for example, Irish nationals living in Ireland or the UK, and EU nationals with pre-settled or settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme, who have met the eligibility criteria.

The government amended the fee status regulations giving effect to these changes. UKCISA has published some helpful guidance, which lists all the categories of student who are eligible to pay Home fees according to the new regulations, and all of the criteria that a student must meet in order to qualify under each category. We strongly recommend that applicants who are uncertain of their fee status read this information carefully. More general information on fee status can be found on the UKCISA website.
