Extra workshop on more challenging fee status decisions in Glasgow

12 December 2017

On 22 March 2018, we will be running our ‘Residence requirements for fees’ workshop in Glasgow. This workshop is for those who:

  • are assessing or advising on fee status in higher education and further education; and
  • have attended UKCISA’s ‘Framework for fees in Scotland’ course within the last 3 years and/or who are already familiar with the prescriptive elements in the Scottish fees regulations relating to ‘ordinary residence’; and
  • need to engage with processes to navigate the various judgement calls around ‘ordinary residence’ – mainly temporary absences, residence in more than one country, temporarily working or studying ‘abroad’ and whether the ‘main purpose’ of residence in the residence area was for receiving full-time education

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 identify processes that are fair and effective for dealing with these more difficult issues and judgement calls.

You, or your colleagues, might want to consider booking on to both the ‘Framework’ course and the workshop as they both complement each other.
