What does externally-funded mean?

You may be considered an externally-funded student if you are:

  • receiving a tuition fee student loan
  • receiving financial support from your government
  • funded by an external sponsor
  • receiving an educational loan

If you are receiving funds for your tuition fees directly from your sponsor to pay the University then you are considered to be a self funded student.

In the event that all or part of a student's tuition fees are not paid on their behalf by an organisation, authority or sponsor, then the student will become personally liable to pay the tuition fees to the University
