In England, international students and UK/EU students pay different tuition fees. If you are not sure whether you should be classed as an international or UK/EU student, you may find it helpful to read the UKCISA information sheet on tuition fees to see if any of the categories for 'home' students apply to you. UKCISA also have a student advice line, if you are applying to a number of universities and need general assistance (+44 20 7107 9922).
If there is any uncertainty over your fee status when you apply to Sussex, you will be sent a questionnaire by our Admissions team. This helps us to collect more information on your personal circumstances, so we can make the most appropriate decision on your fee status.
Changes to tuition fees in England
You may be aware that universities in England will be able to charge undergraduates who are 'home' students a higher tuition fee than before from September 2012. Courses for 'home' students used to be funded by a mix of tuition fees and government subsidies. From 2012, the subsidies will be cut or removed, and tuition fees will be increased to replace these. However, fees for 'overseas' students will not be directly affected, as they already cover the full cost of teaching.
Before you arrive in the UK you need to ensure you have adequate finances to cover your entire period of study. While costs vary from student to student, we estimate you should allow between £840 and £1,010 each month to live on, in addition to your tuition fees (based on costs for the 2011/12 academic year).
