Channel Islands and Isle of Man

If you usually live in the Channel Islands (CI) or Isle of Man (IoM), you won’t be considered as a Home student for funding purposes. The University receives no additional contribution from the UK government’s Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) towards the cost of your studies.

Your tuition fees, and the student support available to you, will be different from those for mainland UK and EU students.
