Residence requirements (for fees) in England, Wales and Northern Ireland - FULLY BOOKED

When assessing fee status or advising on it, there are cases where issues around residence requirements need careful consideration. For many students there are two key residence requirements: ordinary residence in a particular area and the purpose of that residence in that area. While in the majority of cases these requirements can be decided upon quite easily, the minority of cases where judgements are more difficult (or appear to be) can cause much anxiety and end up being very time consuming for those working with students.

Participants on this workshop will work with the facilitators to identify processes that are fair and effective for dealing with these more difficult issues. This is a highly participative workshop. 

If you are only doing fees work for further education (FE) courses in England, this workshop would be of limited value to you.

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • identify appropriate processes for deciding whether or not someone has been, or should be treated as having been, ordinarily resident in the relevant 'residence area'
  • identify appropriate processes for deciding whether the main purpose for being ordinarily resident in the relevant 'residence area' has been for receiving full-time education


There will be no time on this workshop to cover the basic frameworks for assessing fee status. Only those who have already attended a UKCISA fees course, such as our framework courses should consider booking on to this workshop.

This workshop does not deal with any issues concerning immigration status or nationality.

This workshop has a maximum of 20 participants.
