Government confirms funding for EU students applying for places for 2018 to 2019
EU students applying for places in the 2018 to 2019 academic year will remain eligible for financial support.
On Friday (21 April) the government announced that EU students will continue to remain eligible for undergraduate, master’s, postgraduate and advanced learner financial support in the academic year 2018 to 2019.
The decision means EU students applying for an undergraduate or master’s course at an English university or further education institution in the 2018 to 2019 academic year will continue to have access to student loans and grants, even if the course concludes after the UK’s exit from the EU.
EU students are eligible for home fee status, which means they are charged the same tuition fees as UK students. Other non-EU, international students do not have their tuition fees capped in this way.
Existing students and those beginning study in the 2017 to 2018 academic year will continue to receive loans and grants, if eligible, until they finish their course. Further clarification can be sought via the Student Loans Company.
