Tuition fees are higher for overseas students (those from outside the EU and from the Islands – Channel Islands and Isle of Man) than for 'Home' (UK/EU) students.
Generally speaking, in order to be considered as a Home (UK/EU) student for tuition fee purposes, you need to either live in one of the EU member states or have indefinite leave to enter or remain in the UK. In addition, you need to have lived in the European Economic Area (EEA) for the last three years, not solely for educational purposes.
If you're still unsure about your fee status or you think you may be liable for overseas fees, request a fee status assessment questionnaire from any of the College admissions offices and complete and return it with your application form.
You should consult your College as soon as possible if there is any doubt about your fee status classification. Please note that it is not possible to formally assess fee status until the point of application.
In addition, you can seek advice from UKCISA (UK Council for International Student Affairs):
