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.

Is your total Annual Household income £42,875 or less?View more information

'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 25 and over and living with him or her. You will also need to provide this information if you're applying for student loans from the Government.
