The university charges two different levels of tuition fees for our undergraduate degree courses. The Home tuition fee is lower than the Overseas tuition fee.
This is due to the way higher education is funded in England. Your fee status may also affect your eligibility for certain funding or scholarships, and sometimes for a particular course (usually where linked to National Health Service funding/places).
For further guidance see our Fee Status guidelines. Our fee status assessments are based on the eligibility categories provided by UKCISA (the UK Council for International Student Affairs), which can be viewed on their website.
Fee status reassessment for applicants
As regulations regarding fee status can be quite complex, King's does not undertake fee status assessments before receiving a formal application for admission. However, when you apply, your application form will ask you for certain information which will help us undertake an initial assessment, such as your nationality, permanent address and your education history.
If current applicants would like to query their fee status, they should do so by contacting the Admissions Office using the King's Apply portal. Messages and documents must be communicated through the portal in order for us to keep an accurate record of your correspondence.
Please ensure that all fee status queries are resolved before accepting an offer, paying any deposit, or enrolling on the course, as there are only a very few circumstances where your fee status can change during your course of study.
Fee status reassessment for enrolled students
The Admissions Office recognises that there may be circumstances where fee status decisions may require review following enrolment.
There are strict circumstances in which a review can be requested. These criteria and the details of the review process can be found in our policy document.
If current students feel that they meet the criteria and would like to contest their fee status, they must complete the Fee Status Review Form and submit this, along with scans of supporting evidence to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that the email@example.com inbox is only used for fee status review requests for currently enrolled students. We are therefore unable to respond to queries relating to prospective applicant fee status, applicant fee status, invoices, enrolment processes, student loans or student funding opportunities.
