Code 3 'Eligibility to pay home fees not assessed' may be used for all courses or programmes of study for which the concept of 'home fees' does not apply. Typical examples would be students on most FE level or full cost-recovery courses.

Code 3 'Eligibility to pay home fees not assessed' may be used for incoming exchange students.
