Government confirms EU students will still be eligible for UK university loans

14 October 2016


The UK government has confirmed that EU students applying for places at universities in England next year will not have their funding withdrawn.

Under the new plans, student funding will continue as before from the 2017-2018 academic year and will be honoured throughout the duration of applicants’ courses, despite previous concerns raised by institutions. EU students will also be eligible for student loans and grants.

UK universities said the announcement has provided much needed clarity on the matter and must be communicated to European students. Universities minister Jo Johnson said: “International students make an important contribution to our world class universities, and we want that to continue.”

There is little to fear about studying in the UK once Brexit begins. To learn more, head to the SI-UK blog where we take a look at how Brexit will affect EU students going forward.


 My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
