In general, if you are not a national of one of the member states of the European Economic Area (EEA)  and are not a refugee or asylum seeker, then you are an international student and must pay international rather than home fees.
For details of tuition fees and how to make your tuition fee payments please refer to your Conditional Offer Letter.
The UK Border Agency advise that tier 4 international students must demonstrate £800 per month for living expenses for those studying outside of London in addition to demonstrating that the full amount of course fees for the first year of the course has been paid to the institution or is available in bank statements.
For full information on the amount of money that tier 4 students must possess and how this can be demonstrated to the United Kingdom Border Agency (UKBA) please visit the following link:
Check what your passport sticker (entry clearance or residence permit) or biometric residence permit (identity card) says. You can work in the UK if your passport sticker or identity card says one of the following:
- Work (and any changes) must be authorised
- Able to work as authorised by the Secretary of State
- Work as in Tier 4 Rules
- Restricted Work. P/T term time (part time during while at college) F/T vacations (full time during college holidays)
- Restricted work term time
- Work limited to max 20 hrs per week during term-time
- Work limited to max 10 hrs per week during term-time
Your passport sticker or identity card might say something a bit different from these examples, but you can work if it does not say: No work, or Work prohibited.
You must not work if your passport sticker or identity card says “No work” or “Work prohibited” because this would be a breach of your immigration conditions and a criminal offence. If you think that there is an error in the working hours entered in your visa, please see the International Officer who will advise you on your options.
