You will normally be regarded as an overseas fee-paying student unless you are either:
- A national of an EU (European Union) country and have been ordinarily resident within the EU for a period of three years before 1 September immediately preceding the start of your programme; or
- Settled in the UK and have established a relevant connection with the UK by being ordinarily resident here for a similar period.
‘Ordinary residence' means that you are living in the UK on a settled basis. Residence in the UK solely, or mainly for the purposes of education does not qualify as ‘ordinary residence' for the determination of fee status. There are some exceptions to the criteria set out above. These criteria can be complicated. Basic information on how your fee status will be assessed can be found at: www.ukcisa.org.uk/student/info_sheets/tuition_fees_ewni.php.
