EU students following the referendum

Following the EU Referendum, the current advice from The Student Loans Company (SLC) in England in relation to EU student funding is as follows:

  • EU nationals or their family members, currently in higher education, and who are assessed as eligible to receive loans and/or grants from the SLC, will continue to receive these loans and grants until they finish their course. This applies to all student finance from the SLC for students in England for which EU nationals are eligible. This includes loans to cover tuition fees (for those residents in the EEA for three years), loans and grants for maintenance (limited to those residents in the UK for at least three years), and some other grants and allowances.
  • The rules applying to EU nationals, or their family members, who have applied for a place at university from this August to study a course which attracts student support are unchanged.

The SLC will assess these applications against existing eligibility criteria, and will provide loans and/or grants in the normal way. EU nationals, or their family members, who are assessed as eligible to receive grants and/ or loans by the SLC will then be eligible for the duration of their study on that course. These eligibility criteria set out that for students beginning study from this August, EU nationals must have been resident in the UK for at least five years in order to apply for a maintenance loan.

The UK Government has confirmed that EU students enrolling in the 2018/19 academic year will be eligible for the same funding and support as those in 2017/18.

It has also been confirmed that students’ eligibility will continue throughout their course. For further information, please refer to the UK Government’s EU funding support page.

Unfortunately, no funding, bursaries or scholarships are available for international students.

Please also note that international students who require a visa to study are not eligible for this course.
