This page provides explanations of the fees regulations which have underpinned fee status assessment in Scotland since the beginning of the academic year 2022-23, that is on or after 1 August 2022. In this page we tell you who the Scottish Government instructs higher and further education institutions in Scotland to give a 'home' tuition fee to, via its fees regulations.
The relevant fees regulations are the Education (Fees) (Scotland) Regulations 2022 (No 156), as amended. These regulations came into force on 1 August 2022 and, on that date, revoked the former set of fees regulations for Scotland (the Education (Fees) (Scotland) Regulations 2011, as amended).
Remember that, in the context of fees assessment, certain terms mean what is explained for them in the 'Definitions' (at the bottom of this page) and not what you might interpret from an ‘everyday’ understanding of the words.
