Dropout starting afresh through UCAS

    Hi all,

    Trying to find out information on behalf of my sister. She began studying Education in DCU in 2008, did two years and decided it wasn't for her and dropped out.

    Changed direction and did a FETAC course in care in 2011 and worked as a care assistant for a year and a half before moving over to London in January 2013 to continue working in her field there. Just recently got accepted in to Nursing in Southbank and has received some mixed information regarding her fees. Having used up two years worth of her 'free fees' in Ireland, does this transfer over to UK in that she would have to pay non-EU rates for the first two years of her Nursing course there, or does she just have to pay the standard EU fee? (Ignore any possibility of her receiving any financial assistance for the sake of the argument)

    Thanks in advance

    What about that scenario suggests she would pay non-EU fees? She's an EU student therefore she pays EU fees. What she did prior to her latest course does not affect her residency status.

    There is more information here
