Do you reckon they'll reimburse home students who go on exchange from Imperial and are charged £700 for a visa and the associated medical examinations required to be able to obtain that visa???

If they were charging you £17,500 a year, perhaps they would.

If I were an overseas student I would check my fees for next year havn't gone up by £85 to pay for it.

"Undergraduate tuition fees for international students have risen from around £16,500 to £17,500 this year, a rise of about 6%. Inflation is in the region of 2.4%, leading to an impression of College giving with one hand and taking away with the other."

So far from giving £85 to students they are in effect taking £915 extra, doesn't sound great to me.
