About You

The Government classes all students as 'Home' 'European Union (EU)' or 'International'. This status determines what tuition fees you pay, and what scholarships you are eligible for.

To be classed as 'Home' or 'EU' you have to meet the requirements of both 'settled status' and 'ordinary residence'.

'Settled status' requirements: You or a close family member are a national of the UK or another EU country, or you have the legal right to permanently live in the UK or another EU country.

Ordinary residence requirements: You have been living in the UK, European Economic Area or Switzerland for three years, but not for the purposes of receiving education.

This is only a guide – for full information on how you will be classified, please see the UK Council for International Student Affairs website.

'Annual Household income' is your parents' or partner's pre-tax income, plus your own. Your parents' income is assessed if you're under 25 and depend on them financially. Your partner's income is assessed if you're over 25 and living with him or her.

You will also need to provide this information if you're applying for student loans from the Government.

The time you spend overseas replaces the time you would have spent in Sunderland, so it doesn't increase the duration of your degree.
