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 the 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.

International student funding and support

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. 

Selection Process

Whilst we have some minimum academic requirements for students, academic ability is not the deciding factor for ScreenSpace in determining the students we recruit.

We are looking for specific skill sets such as the following:

  • A passion for content creation
  • Ability to present ideas and formulate creative solutions
  • Clarity of why the student wishes to study on the course
  • An understanding of the creative industries
  • Ability to work as part of a team

Once your application has been received it will be assessed against our academic criteria, and then your previous experience, personal statement and referees statement will be assessed against our skill sets criteria.

If successfully at this stage you may be invited to an interview morning or afternoon. These will be a chance for you to discover more about the Space, and take part in workshops designed to allow us to further assess your skills and suitability for the course.

Students will then be notified if they have been successful in their application.

Appeals Process

In selecting students, admissions staff aim to reach decisions which are fair and consistent in relation to the published entry criteria, the evidence the applicant presents of their academic and/or professional qualifications and which consider any specific skills or experiences which are essential or desirable for the course in question.

Applicants who may wish to appeal against an admissions decision should follow the below procedure:

  • An applicant must seek formal feedback from the admissions team before deciding whether or not he/she has grounds to appeal the admissions decision.
  • The applicant should then request an appeal form to fill in, detailing the nature of their appeal.
  • Appeals must be received within 20 working days following the provision of feedback from the admissions team member supervising the application.
  • An appeal should be submitted in writing to the Head of Admissions, ScreenSpace, Ealing Studios, Ealing Green, London W5 5EP, or by email to, stating clearly the grounds for appeal.
  • The Head of Admissions will screen each submission in the first instance to determine if there are sufficient grounds for appeal. If it is judged that there may be grounds for appeal, they will escalate the appeal to the Director of Admissions and Marketing.
  • If an appeal is to be heard and additional information is required, the applicant will be informed in writing and provided with an appropriate deadline by which to submit the information.
  • An Appeals Panel convened at ScreenSpace will consider appeals as appropriate. The Dean and Director of Admissions and Marketing will make a decision based on the evidence submitted.
  • The applicant will be informed in writing of the outcome of the appeal and given an explanation for the decision which has been reached.
  • The decision of the Appeals Panel is final and there is no further right of appeal.
