Version 9 of 'Who pays 'home' fees for HE in England?'

21 May 2024


A new version of UKCISA's pdf guide 'Who pays 'home' fees for higher education in England?' has been published. Please use version 9 from now on.

The only change is to the definition of a 'person with protected rights' (on page 10). The definition used to explain that pre-settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme would be lost if the holder stayed outside the UK and Islands for a continuous period of more than two years. That period has now changed to five years (or four years, in the case of a Swiss national or a family member of a Swiss national). This is because of a change made by the Immigration (Leave to Enter and Remain) (Amendment) Order 2024 (S.I. 2024 No.663), which came into effect on 21 May 2024.

Version 9 (dated 21 May 2024) contains no new information compared to version 8 (dated 20 February 2024), apart from this one change.


Downloading the pdf guide

Please use version 9 of the pdf guide from now on. It is dated 21 May 2024.

Students can download version 9 of the pdf guide ('Who pays 'home' fees for HE in England?') from the UKCISA website. UKCISA members will probably prefer to use the member copy of version 9 - it can be downloaded by UKCISA members from section 2.5 of the fees section of the UKCISA online manual (look in the Resources box at the bottom of the page). It includes useful additional footnotes.

As explained at the beginning of the pdf, it is a 'living' document and readers should expect to see it develop over time. Please always use only the most recent version.
