Fee status

Course fees will be charged at either the Home or Overseas rate from 2022/23, depending on your fee status.

Information for applicants from the EU, EEA and Switzerland

If you are an EU national and do not live in the UK then you are likely to be charged Overseas fees. Students with settled and pre-settled status granted under the EU Settlement Scheme and some other categories of students who work in the UK can qualify for Home fee status as long as they meet the residence criteria. For more information about fee status criteria please visit the UK Council for International Students' (UKCISA) website as well as the Oxford and the EU webpage.

Information for applicants from the Republic of Ireland

Irish nationals who have been living in the Republic of Ireland or the UK can qualify for Home fees as long as they meet the residence requirements which can be found on the UK Council for International Students' (UKCISA) website.

UK nationals who have been living in the EEA, Switzerland or Gibraltar and are returning to England to study

UK nationals living in the EEA, Switzerland or Gibraltar from December 2020 until the first day of their course and for the three years before the first day of their course will also be charged Home fees subject to the requirements on the UK Council for International Students' (UKCISA) website. Children of UK nationals will also be eligible on the same terms, even if they are not themselves UK nationals, as long as both they and their parent meet the above criteria.

How is my fee status decided?

All English universities use the same criteria to assess students' fee status which can be found on the UK Council for International Students' (UKCISA) website. If you are unsure about your fee status you should read this information first. The information provided by UKCISA is a summary of the government regulations for assessing fee status.

Broadly speaking, your fee status depends on your nationality, your immigration status in the UK, where you have been living and what you have been doing for the three years prior to the start of your course.

Universities are required to assess each students' fee status independently which means that we cannot take into account decisions made by other Universities. 

Once you have applied, the University can make an assessment of your fee status using the information you have provided on your UCAS application form. If we need further information in order to complete this assessment, and you are offered a place, we will contact you to request this. 

Can my fee status change?

It is not usually possible for your fee status to change once your course has started, except in certain specific circumstances. These circumstances include if you or a relevant family member is recognised as a refugee or is granted humanitarian protection (and you can meet the residency requirement). A change in fee status is not automatic and you should contact the Student Fees Team if you think you might be eligible.

Unless the circumstances above apply to you, your fee status will not be reassessed for Year 4 of an integrated Master's qualification (for example, MMath) or for the clinical part of the BM BCh qualification as these are a continuation of your current course.

If you start a new course, then your fee status is re-assessed. If your circumstances have changed since you started your previous course, your fee status may be different.

More information

If you have received an offer of a place, have read all the information here and on the UKCISA website, but are still not sure what fees you are likely to pay, or if you are a current student and would like a re-assessment of your status, please complete the fee questionnaire and contact the Student Fees Team for an assessment.

Please note that we do not normally carry out assessments if you have not yet received an offer of a place from the University.
