Students from Jersey attending university in Wales from the 2022-2023 academic year will now be charged home fees, following a decision by the Welsh Government.
The vast majority of Welsh universities already charge Crown Dependency students home fees: this includes students from Jersey. On 26 January 2022, the Welsh Government made regulations which give Crown Dependency students access to home fees.
The changes follow a similar announcement by the English Government which means Jersey students can access the same fees as UK residents when studying at an English university.
The changes apply to all levels of study and come into effect from the 2022-2023 academic year. This means that any Jersey students starting their studies at a Welsh university from September 2022 will be charged home fees.
Students who are in the process of applying to study at a Welsh university can apply as normal.
Minister for Children and Education, Deputy Scott Wickenden, said: "This is wonderful news for students and families, as they can now apply to a Welsh university with complete clarity about the fees they'll be charged.
"Because this change applies to Master and PhD degrees, as well as undergraduate degrees, I hope it will enable more Jersey students to reach their potential at all levels."
