Financial support for students studying abroad as part of your course Financial support for students studying abroad as part of your course

If you will be spending time abroad (studying or working) as part of your degree programme and are in receipt of financial support from Student Finance, please read the following details.

Finance application

When completing your finance application for the next academic year please ensure you have indicated that you will be spending time away from the UEA. Here is an example of the pages you need to look out for. You should be able to do this through your online application or via the paper forms from the Student Finance Webpages.

Finance assessment

Whilst carrying out your financial assessment Student Finance may require the UEA to confirm details of your placement and provide evidence of this. In order for us to promptly provide this information please complete the study or work abroad form.

Travel costs

Depending on your circumstances you may be entitled to claim back some of the travel costs incurred as part of your course. Student Finance expect the student to cover the first £303 of the costs and if eligible Student Finance will provide details on how to be reimbursed for any reasonable additional costs associated with the Study Abroad placement e.g. flights.

Tuition Fees

Students spending a year abroad as part of their course continue to be liable for fees at UEA while they are abroad. Fees cover administration and overheads which can include: guidance and assistance in the setting up of placements, monitoring and approval of placements, procedures for accreditation and assessment while the student is abroad and completion of the placement, sending out information on module enrolments for the following academic year, pastoral and practical advice, access to UEA online services and other regular contacts with students abroad.

In 2016/17 Home/EU students spending the year abroad on the £3465 fee rate will be charged tuition fees at approximately 50% of the full-time rate £1725. Those home/EU students spending the year abroad on the £9000 fee rate will be charged tuition fees at approximately 15% of the full-time rate £1350.
