Studying in the UK: essential information for EU students

Here’s what we know so far:

Eligible EU nationals who start courses in 2019-20 and 2020-21, or who have already started their course, won’t see any changes to their fee status for the full duration of their course.
- EU nationals can also continue to apply for tuition fee loans.
- This is guaranteed whatever happens with Brexit, whether you study in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland.
The UK continues to participate fully in the current Erasmus+ programme while it is still an EU Member State. The European Commission’s contingency Regulation ensures that Erasmus+ funded learning mobility activities that are already underway when the UK withdraws from the EU do not have to be interrupted, even in a no-deal Brexit.

Students who arrive before the UK leaves the EU will not need a visa to stay in the UK. The exact arrangements for students coming after the UK leaves the EU will depend on the outcome of political negotiations, as well as when they start their course. Follow the links below for more information.
