Guidance for EU students post-Brexit

Latest update

As formal discussions regarding the UK’s departure of the EU continue, clarity has been provided on EU student funding up to 2021:

EU students starting university in the 2019/2020 and 2020/21 academic years will have guaranteed home fee status and financial support for the duration of courses in England. This means, if you are starting your course in September 2019, January 2020 or September 2020, you will pay the same fees as UK students throughout your course.

UK universities and colleges are working to ensure that as many EU students as possible can continue to study in the UK after Brexit. As negotiations continue, further changes in policy may be announced. The UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) have issued advice for EU students on Brexit and what it means for students and their family.

EU Settlement Scheme now open to students

EU citizens who wish to remain in the UK after it leaves the European Union will need to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme. This scheme has been tested in certain employment sectors and is now open for all members of the public, including most students. As the UK is not due to leave the EU until 31 January 2020, applying for the scheme at this time is completely voluntary. You can find out more information on the UKCISA website.
