Publicly funded educational institutions normally charge two levels of fee: a lower 'home' fee and a higher 'overseas' fee. Private sector institutions often have only one level of tuition fee, which all students must pay.
Whether you pay a 'home' or 'overseas' fee depends on whether you meet certain criteria.
Please read Home or Overseas fees? before looking at our explanation of the fees regulations/guidance for your relevant area of the UK.
Remember that, in the context of the fees regulations/guidance, certain terms mean what is explained for them in the 'definitions' and not what you might interpret from an ‘everyday’ understanding of the words.
