Description
This field distinguishes between those students who are eligible to pay home fees and those who are not.
Notes

Channel Islands and Isle of Man domiciled students should be coded as code 01 'Eligible to pay home fees

Code 03 eligibility to pay home fees not assessed should not be returned simply because the provider does not have different fees for home and non-UK students. This field relates to the students eligibility rather than the fee structure of a particular provider.

Code 03 may be used for some courses where the concept of home fees does not apply; a typical example would be full cost-recovery courses.

The allocation of a student to a fee eligibility should be consistent with the treatment in the HESES return.

Reason Required
To allow financial calculations to take account of the fee difference between home/EU and overseas students and of other fee offsets. To resolve otherwise indeterminate home/overseas cases. Used to determine populations in funding calculations and analyses.
