Channel Islands and Isle of Man domiciled students should be coded as code 1 'Eligible to pay home fees' for providers in England and Scotland.
For providers in Wales and Northern Ireland, Channel Islands and Isle of Man domiciled students should be coded as code 2 'Not eligible to pay home fees'.
Rest of UK students at Scottish providers eligible to pay the deregulated fees for such students should be coded as 1 'Eligible to pay home fees'.
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.
