Students currently studying on the final year of an HNC, HND or Foundation degree at a University of Greenwich campus or Partner College What is it…. These students are eligible to progress onto Top-up / Final Year Degree programmes at UoG or Partner Colleges without having to go through the full application process • Direct enquiries to [email protected] Fast Track Closing Programmes which are FULL • Student target numbers are set at University and School/College level as well as programme level • If you wish to close a programme as you have achieved your target number discuss this with your Dean of School in case other programmes in the School have under recruited. • If the Faculty Operating Officer wishes to close a programme they should contact the Director or Recruitment & Admissions to see how this fits into the university-wide targets Home or Overseas?? All applicants are Fee Assessed Either from the application form or Fee Assessment Form Many different things to be taken into consideration, big 3 they need to meet to be considered Home - Must have 3 years residence in UK/EU Not been here for Education purposes Settled with no restrictions on stay and freedom to move in and out of the country Fee Status Can’t Change? There are a limited number of places for Home-fee paying students. If an applicant is assessed (from the Fee Assessment Form that they complete) as being liable for fees at the ‘Overseas’ rate and later submits additional information that shows that they are eligible for fees at the ‘Home’ rate, it is not guaranteed that they will have a place at the ‘Home’ rate. If the university has already met its ‘Home’ student numbers the offer may be withdrawn, a place offered for next year or they take up the Overseas place. Any questions?
