Levels of fees and eligibility for studentships or funding depend upon whether you are classified as a 'Home', 'EU' or an 'Overseas' (that is, international) student. Home students are people who are 'settled' in the UK as defined by the Immigration Act 1971 and have been 'ordinarily resident' in the United Kingdom throughout the three years immediately preceding the beginning of the programme. 'Ordinary Residence' does not include residence partly or wholly for the purpose of receiving full-time education. Certain persons may be exempt from the 'ordinary residence' requirement, eg:
- Certain nationals of member states of the European Union
- Persons recognised as refugees, their spouses and children
- Persons who can satisfy the University that their inability to fulfil the ordinary residence requirement was solely because they, their spouses or their parents were temporarily employed abroad
- Persons who have been granted 'Exceptional Leave to Remain' or 'Exceptional Leave to Enter' the UK, as a result of a failed asylum application.
