Version 8 of 'Who pays 'home' fees for HE in England?'

20 February 2024



Two typographical errors that appeared in Version 7 of UKCISA's pdf guide, 'Who pays 'home' fees for higher education in England?' have been corrected. Please use Version 8 from now on.

The typographical errors that have been corrected are as follows:

  • A missing explanation of requirement (d) in the '3 years in UK and Islands, EU Settlement Scheme settled status connection' category on page 46 has been reinstated. It is: 

    "(d) you must be ordinarily resident in the UK on the first day of the first academic year of the course".

  • A missing explanation of requirement (d) in the 'Brexit protected rights: EU national / EU family / family of relevant person of Northern Ireland' category on page 82 has been reinstated. It is:

    "(d) you must undertake the course in the UK".


Thank you to the UKCISA member who spotted the missing lines and quickly let us know about them. We apologise for the errors, and any confusion they might have caused in the meantime. Version 8 (dated 20 February 2024) contains no new information compared to Version 7 (dated 10 February 2024), apart from the correction of the two errors.

If you have not yet read UKCISA's news story this month titled 'Version 7 of 'Who pays 'home' fees for HE in England?' then do read that now. Once you have read it you will be up-to-date with all the important changes that are being made to the regulations about who pays 'home' fees for higher education in England.
