Equivalent or Lower Level Qualifications Policy

Main Visual

As of 2008, the UK government has stopped funding universities for Home students who study a degree which is equivalent to or lower than their current qualification.

Therefore, if you are completing a qualification which is at an equivalent or lower academic level, you will pay a supplement of £3,947 in addition to the Home fee stated here.

Please visit the Department for Business Innovation & Skills for more information about this policy. http://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/ and http://www.dius.gov.uk/publications/hefunding.html
