UK government confirms funding for EU students in 2018/19 academic year
21 April 2017
The UK government has confirmed that EU students applying for university places in the 2018/19 academic year will remain eligible for financial support.
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.
Universities and Science Minister Jo Johnson said: “We have been clear about our commitment to the UK’s world-class higher education sector. A key part of our success is attracting talent from across the globe. This will provide reassurance to the brightest minds from across Europe to continue applying to study in the UK, safe in the knowledge financial assistance is available if needed.”
