Higher education & Alumni
We are sharing with you details of the recent announcement made regarding University fees for EU students applying for English Universities in the 2020/21 academic year.
“On 28th May 2019, we announced guarantees on student finance for EU nationals. These guarantees are not altered if the UK leaves the EU without a deal. EU nationals (and their family members) who start a course in England in the 2020/21 academic year or before will continue to be eligible for ‘home fee’ status and student finance support from Student Finance England for the duration of their course, provided they meet the residency requirement.
EU students and staff make an important contribution to our universities and it is testament to our system that so many students from abroad choose to come and study here. We recognise how important it is that students and institutions have information on eligibility for student support before applications for courses open.
Applications for courses starting in academic year 2021/22 do not open until September 2020. We will provide sufficient notice for prospective EU students on fee arrangements ahead of the 2021/22 academic year and subsequent years in future.

***The government has announced the student support arrangements for EU students entering higher education in England in 2017. EU students that begin their studies in 2017 will be eligible for student loans and grants for the duration of their course. Check the GOV.UK website for further information. Similarly, the Welsh Government has provided an update regarding student support arrangements for EU students entering higher education in Wales in 2017/18. As in England, arrangements for students beginning their studies in 2017 will remain unchanged, and those students eligible to receive grants and/or loans by the Student Loans Company will receive support for the duration of their study. Announcements are expected soon regarding arrangements for EU applicants for 2017 to Scottish or Northern Irish universities and colleges. Once announced, this information will be published on ucas.com, and further updates will be sent to EU students and their advisers.
