'Provisional home fees' from Warwick?

Received an offer from Warwick uni. Does anybody know what 'provisional home fees' is? It says these will be fixed when I enrol.
it's their get out clause so they can change people to International fees at a later date if they've made a mistake in their assessment. unless you have a reason to think you're not eligible for home fees, I wouldn't worry.

Why might you not be?

Ring Warwick and ask them to send you a fee assessment form to confirm your fee status.

I'm frankly shocked that a University is happy to wait until registration to finalise the fee status. they should be proactively sending the fee assessment out. finding out at reg that you're on international fees rather than home is quite a massive change.
I believe Warwick send two emails where they have amended someone’s fee status.

1) An offer email which states “you have been assessed as X fee status”.

2) A second email which states “you have initially been assessed as X. If you wish to have this revisited, please complete the following questionnaire.”

I am not aware of the word “provisional” appearing in their Home offers, although I’m happy to be proved wrong.

I'm not sure if I've been 'ordinarily resident' for the last three years.. already doing the assessment with Queen Mary.

Is this meant to be when I enrol, or do they send it before I make my decisions...?x


thank youuuuu!!!xx
Email 2 should come within 1 or 2 working days of the offer. Enrolment will be much later, circa Aug/Sept.

If you want to PM me the email I can take a look.

I am still waiting for an offer from Warwick after receiving ABB offers from Exeter, Nottingham and Lancaster. I have applied for Biochemistry starting 2020.

But they have all the information when you apply. What would they do if you haven't been a local student for 3 years and you have received this offer? Will they automatically change it to international?

This thread is very old and their process may have changed over the last 3yrs.

Unis don't receive all the supporting information they need to assess fee status on a UCAS application, which is why if there is any doubt it's typical to default to overseas and ask for a fee review to be completed.
