As an EU national, or a family member of an EU national, you can generally apply for financial help to cover the cost of tuition fees for FdSc foundation degrees and BSc(Hons) undergraduate degrees at Sparsholt College, if you have been living within the EEA and Switzerland for the three years immediately before the start of your course. This applies where the main reason for your being in the EEA and Switzerland was not to receive full-time education. Full details can be found on the GOV.UK website.

EU students are normally not required to pay tuition or examination fees for UK government-funded Level 3 Diploma courses if they have not reached their 19th birthday on 1st September of the year in which their course begins.

The cost of living

We are in the process of compiling a price list for a sample basket of student-related groceries as they are currently available in Winchester. This will be posted soon and updated regularly.

You can also check online prices of food and beverages by visiting local supermarket websites (Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Waitrose); and pricing for a wide variety of goods on sites such as Amazon and John Lewis.

There is also a very interesting website – NUMBEO – hosting a very wide range of indices that are based on users uploading information on local pricing of goods and services, just as Wikipedia is based on user input of information. This live site covers a very wide range of countries.

But don’t forget that there is a Saturday Market in Winchester every week, a twice-monthly Farmers’ Market in town, and a variety of specialist local shops.
