    Hi all,

    I have received a conditional offer from Sheffield Halam which is great news! but i am a little unsure to what one of the conditions means.

    "This offer is subject to you obtaining

    THE FEE FOR THIS COURSE FOR 2010/11 IS 3290 GBP. THIS FEE

    ONLY APPLIES TO STUDENTS WITH HOME AND EU FEE STATUS."

    Does this mean i have to fund the course myself or does this mean on terms if i can get a student loan?

    Many Thanks

    It means you pay £3290 per year for tuition since you are a UK or EU resident. Other foreign students would pay significantly more than that.

    You can get a student loan, or you can pay for it out of savings, earnings etc. It's basically just telling you how much the fee is, that's all.

    It just means that you'll be able to pay, either by student loan, or by yourself

    I received this offer and am a little confused!

    The conditions of the offer are:

    This offer is subject to you obtaining

    PLEASE SEND A COPY OF YOUR QUALIFICATIONS INCLUDING GCSEs TO

    THE ADMISSIONS OFFICE AT SHEFFIELD HALLAM UNIVERSITY. THE

    FEE FOR THIS COURSE FOR 2010/11 IS 3290 GBP. THIS FEE ONLY

    APPLIES TO STUDENTS WITH HOME AND EU FEE STATUS.

    It doesn't say anywhere what grades I need? I sent the copy of my qualifications a few weeks ago, will they send back the conditions for me? It says the offer is conditional on the UCAS track site. So confused!

    Do you have any level 3 (A levels/IB qualifications)? basically, it'll change to unconditional once they recieve + process them

    sorry to bump up an old thread but ive also got a conditional offer and just wanted to clarify a few things. The offer says

    This offer is subject to you obtaining

    240 TARIFF POINTS FROM AT LEAST TWO GCE/VCE LEVELS AND/OR

    BTEC/OCR QUALIFICATIONS. Advance subsidiary and a maximum

    of 20 points from key skills level 3 may contribute to these

    points. THE FEE FOR THIS COURSE FOR 2010/11 IS 3290 GBP,

    THIS FEE ONLY APPLIES TO STUDENTS WITH HOME AND EU FEE

    STATUS.

    So does that mean I have to get 240 points, some from at least 2 a level subjects and the rest can be AS levels?

    This offer is conditional on international fee status

    Anyone knows what this means? Just saw it on my UCAS application to Nottingham University (M100)

    If you have not lived in the UK or EU for the last three years (actual conditions are more complex, see http://www.reading.ac.uk/Study/fees/...efinition.aspx ) you are likely to be classified as an international student, and you will pay higher fees and not be eligible for a student loan.

    An increasing number of universities are making international status a condition of their offers, because they want the higher fees, thus disadvantaging home students.

    It is not clear that this is legal. If you have the energy, it would be good to get legal advice, though given the cuts in free legal advice, you may not get it.

    Since the issue has not yet come to court, it could be a path-breaking case for any combative lawyer choosing to challenge this practice.
