Fees and funding

How your fees status is assessed

The course fees you pay may differ depending on your nationality or where you live. Your fees status at the university will be assessed as home or overseas.

Your status will be based on the information you provide on the Fee Assessment Form sent to you by our Admissions Office.

You must complete this form and return it to the Admissions Office along with any evidence required so we can assess your fees status correctly. If the form is incomplete or not returned, your status will be determined as overseas.

Your fee status is set during the registration process when your identity and original documents are verified.

Who determines my fees status?

Your fee status is determined by the Education (Fees and Awards) Regulations and European Union legislation - not the university.

The regulations we use apply to higher education institutes in England. Different regulations apply to Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, to colleges of further education, and to courses attracting an NHS bursary.

See a summary of the regulations on fee assessment in England.

How to appeal if you believe your fees status is incorrect

If you believe that you have been incorrectly assessed, you should appeal this as quickly as possible.

To do this, you need to read the fees regulations carefully and locate the specific category that applies to your circumstances. You must also submit evidence that supports your grounds for appeal.

Most categories of home fee status include several criteria, and you usually need to meet all of these to be eligible for fees at the home rate.

Appeals must be submitted by e-mail to feestatusappeal@gre.ac.uk.

You must include the following:

  1. Your first name and surname
  2. Your date of birth
  3. Your student ID number
  4. Grounds for appeal, identifying the relevant category and criteria
  5. Appropriate supporting evidence.

Any appeals that do not specify the appropriate category (including all criteria relating to that category) or that are sent without supporting evidence will be rejected.
