From 2014, The University of Law charged different fees for ‘Home’ (UK/EU) students and ‘Overseas’ students (all those not satisfying the ‘Home’ fee status).
The Education (Fees and Awards) (England) Regulations 2007 govern the definition of 'home' (UK/EU) and 'overseas' students for the purpose of fees. These regulations enable individual institutions to classify the fee status of students. The onus is on individual students to satisfy the institution that they meet the criteria to be classified as home status for the purpose of fees.
Places for Home fee students are limited, consequently we are required to establish fee status prior to making a decision on your application. Assessments are based on the information and facts that you provide at the time of your initial application to the school.
Only certain categories of students will be charged home fee. You should always consult UKCISA for the most up to date information. A summary is given below.
In order to qualify as a home UK student, you must meet all of the following criteria:
• you must have been 'ordinarily resident' in the UK and Islands (the Islands means the Channel Islands and Isle of Man) for the full three year period before the 'first day of the first academic year of the course'
The following categories of students may also qualify for the 'home' fee:
In order to qualify as a home EU student, you must meet all of the following criteria:
The following may also qualify for the 'home' EU fee:
The above is only a very brief summary and there are a number of exceptions to the above conditions. For more detailed information, and to see whether you fall into any of these, or any other category, please refer to the UKCISA guide 'Will I pay Home or Overseas fees?'
