QMUL qualifies Swiss as "overseas" students


pastis16

Dear all

I was granted an unconditional offer by QMUL, which I accepted. Now, after providing the Tuition Fee Classification they consider me as "overseas" student. I am Swiss National and have never lived abroad, neither have my Swiss parents. There is apparently a new guidance which says:

If you have not yet started your course, it is likely your university/college will insist also that your Swiss parent must be exercising a right of residence in the UK (for example as a self-sufficient person, a worker, or a student) on the first day of an academic year of your course. Check this by asking your university/college."

Would that mean, it depends on the residency of my parents whether I am considered a "home" or "overseas" student?

Maybe any Swiss in this forum can help me with that?

Thank you very much for your support!!

chicken so...

It looks like Swiss students, unless their parents are living/working in the UK, are treated separately from EU nationals:

You should ask the school though.
