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 England.

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: Thursday 7 December 2.00pm-4.00pm
  • Session 2: Friday 8 December 10.00am-12.00pm
  • Session 3: Friday 8 December 2.30pm-4.30pm

In advance of the training, delegates should download a copy of UKCISA’s ‘Who pays ‘home’ fees for higher education in England?’ pdf guide, so that they can refer to it 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.
