This three-part training course offers UKCISA members an introduction to the regulations that determine who should be charged ‘home’ fees and who can be charged ‘overseas fees’ for higher education in Scotland.  

We will cover key concepts of fee assessment and explore the ‘home’ student fee categories that assessors come across most frequently. This course is highly participative; and, between sessions, delegates will be required to do extra reading in preparation for the next session.   

The course will be delivered in three parts. Delegates must attend all three sessions: 

  • Session 1: Wednesday 28 February 2024, 2.00pm-4.00pm 
  • Session 2: Thursday 29 February 2024, 10.00pm-12.00pm 
  • Session 3: Thursday 29 February 2024, 2.30pm-4.30pm 

In advance of the training, delegates should visit our Scotland fee status webpage, to familiarise themselves with key concepts. We will refer to this, and delegates will use this, throughout the course.   

Who should attend? 

This course is for staff at UKCISA membership institutions who are fee assessors. We welcome those who are new to the role of assessing fee status and those who are familiar with fee assessment and would like a refresher course.
