Fee paying categories

UK or European Union fee status depends on your nationality and residency. In general, students paying the UK or EU fee should have 'settled status' under UK immigration regulations prior to the star t of their course, or students holding full European Union nationality should have been resident in the European Economic Area for non-educational purposes for three years prior to the star t of their course. The UK/EU category also includes EU students with indefinite leave to remain in the UK.If you are uncertain about your fee status please contact
