Fee definitions

The University of Hertfordshire has responsibility for determining your tuition fee status. We are obliged to follow UK Government regulations when making tuition fee assessments.

University tuition fees are charged at a rate depending on your fee status. These rates are:

  • Home or European Union (EU)
  • Overseas (International)

The rate you are charged depends on numerous factors such as:

  • your nationality.
  • your immigration status in the UK or European Economic Area (EEA).
  • where you have been living.
  • what you have been doing for the three years prior to the start of your course.

Assessments of tuition fee status are carried out on an individual basis and take into account the circumstances of each applicant. As an international student requiring a Tier 4 (general) visa, it is most likely you will be assigned an overseas fee status.
