Its a good question... i'd like to know the answer... but apprently no-one does :/
You could ask the uni if they'll let you pay lower fees but they'll probably make you pay the higher ones
How does the transfer work ??? Do you have to apply to Uni one by one or through UCAS ?
You always pay the same fee regardless of the circumstance. Whatever fee you paid in your first year is the same fee you pay at the new university.
In my situation, I started first year paying £1,300~. This was a long time ago.
I then was sick for 5 years!! I left that uni and started uni last year.
I'm still paying £1,300~ per year! It's great.
Student finance told me that you always pay the fee type that you began with.
This includes if you leave the uni, transfer, or take a leave of absence.
However, student finance has messed up in the past. So ALWAYS get in touch with them and remind them that you should pay the original fees!
I know this is probably far too much to ask for, but if you pay the same level of fees that you started on, does that mean if as a scottish student you start on no fees then transfer to an english uni, do you still get it free? That would be awesome, if extremely unlikely :L anyone know though?
You pay the same fee as your previous academic year if you are progressing onto the next year of that full-time course. I don't know if this applies if you take a gap year/(s) in between.
