Verification of fee status for research study

In common with other UK universities, the University of Sheffield charges different tuition fees depending on whether students are classed as Home or Overseas for fee purposes.

Assessing your fee status

If your fee status is not clear from the information provided in your application, our Admissions Service will write to you to ask for more information. We will do this after we have decided whether or not to offer you a place. Please note that a ruling on your fee status is independent from the academic decision to offer you a place.

If the information provided in your application clearly indicates a particular fee status, we will not write to you. However, even if we do not contact you before you arrive at the University, your fee status may still be in question, and you may be asked to provide further information during the registration process.

It is important to raise any queries relating to your fee status before you complete your registration at the University. Fee status is only changed part way through a course in a small minority of cases, and for a specific and limited list of reasons. If we have not written to you, and you wish to query your fee status, you should contact the Admissions Service by email at shefapply@sheffield.ac.uk and ask for a formal ruling.

When your status has been formally established, this will be reflected in your University record.
