Fee Status Assessment

Assessment of your fee status

The level of tuition fees that you will need to pay is based on your fee status. Our assessment of your fee status will be based on rules set by the UK Government. These are contained in the Higher Education (Fee Limit Condition) Regulations 2017 and the Education (Fees and Awards) (England) Regulations 2007.

Once you have applied, we will make a decision on your fee status based on the information that you have given us in your application.

Requesting a Change of your Fee Status

Please first read the UKCISA guidance on assessing tuition fee status:

If after reading the guidance you think our assessment may be incorrect please complete the fee status questionnaire at

Please answer all of the questions as fully as possible. All information provided will be treated in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (2016), the UK Data Protection Act 2018 and all applicable Data Protection laws.

Once we have reviewed your form we will contact you for any additional documentation or evidence that may be needed in order to assess your case properly.

We typically do not change Fee Statuses after you have enrolled, except for in very rare cases. For more information contact the Student Financial Support team on +44 (0) 118 378 5555 or email
