CIBC ISP benefits for international students:
Your offer letter states the amount of course fees you will need to pay for the first year of your studies.
Course fees are payable in each year of an academic course.
Course fees and living expenses should be calculated separately.
If your country of birth is outside the UK/EU, (or you have studied and gained qualifications outside of the UK), and you state that you are eligible for home fees, you will be required to provide additional documentation to support this.
Information regarding home/international fee status can be found via the UK Council for International Student Affairs. In particular, the information sheet Tuition fees for study in Wales: Will I pay the ‘home’ or ‘overseas’ rate? which outlines the specific fees status categories used for assessment.
If you wish to appeal a University tuition fee decision, you may find it helpful to first discuss your situation with an adviser via the UKCISA Student Advice Line. If you then believe that you fall into one of the categories outlined in the information sheet above, you should email [email protected]. Please state in the email which specific fee category is relevant to you and attach supporting evidence for this.
Once the deposit has been paid to the University of South Wales, it will only be considered for a refund on the production of an original visa rejection notice from the appropriate British Consulate which shows that the information you provided to them was appropriate for your application. If you wish to apply for a refund please email [email protected].
