Tuition fees are set at different levels for Home/EU and international students. Before you begin your course we must establish your tuition fee status.

If you have a time restricted immigration permission for your stay in the UK and are successful with your application, we will regularly check for any updates on your immigration status during your studies. This information will be confirmed with the Home Office.

If at any point during the application process or after you start your studies, we are informed that your immigration status has changed, such that you are no longer permitted to study at the University, you must leave your studies immediately; your ability to resume your course will be dependent on your immigration status and the time elapsed during any break in study. The University’s tuition fee refund procedure will apply.  

 Home-fee status

Eligibility criteria for Home-fee status can be found on the UKCISA (UK Council for International Student Affairs) website.

We will use the information provided in your application to assess whether you are eligible to pay Home/EU or International fees. In many cases, we will be able to make this assessment without needing any additional information and your fee status will be confirmed if/when you receive an offer to study at the University. However, we may ask for further information if we cannot determine your fee status.
