If you believe that you may be eligible to pay home fee rate you may contact the institution you are seeking to study at to review your tuition fee status. Or you may wish to obtain independent advise from UKCISA (The UK Council for international student Affairs), to help you determine whether you meet the criteria to pay home fees.
For English language courses it depends on the course and the school. A range of £150 to £250 per week for General English course, it may reach more than £1,000 per week for specialised or tailored courses.
