The provision of education by the University to our students is exempt from VAT because the University is an “eligible body” for the purposes of the education exemption.

Education is not normally exempt from VAT when supplied by organisations that are not eligible bodies.  This means subsidiaries of the University may have to charge VAT when providing education.
