03 July 2018
The UK Government has confirmed that EU students will continue to pay the same fees as UK students for the 2019 academic year, allaying ongoing Brexit fears.
In a statement, the UK Education secretary Damian Hinds said: “Students from the EU make an important contribution to the universities sector and it is a testament to our system that so many students from abroad choose to come and study here.”
It is welcoming news for the 135,000 EU students who currently study in the UK, and those who are considering applying to a UK university can with the confidence that they will not have to pay up-front tuition fees and will remain eligible to receive government-backed loans to cover their tuition for the duration of their courses.
