On December 31st 2020 the UK formally left the European Union.
UK universities and SI-UK have always supported diversity, tolerance and internationalism and the UK remains one of the most welcoming destinations in the world for an EU student looking to gain a world class education.
All universities strongly believe that European and international students make a vital contribution to UK higher education and society as a whole.

A number of UK universities plan on offering fee reduction scholarships which will bring tuition fees into line with the fee paid by UK students for the duration of their course.
If you arrived in the UK before 1st January 2021, you will not need a visa, but if you plan to stay in the UK longer than 1st January 2021, you’ll need to apply online for the free EU Settlement Scheme (see below).
If you arrived after 1st January 2021, you need to apply for a student visa if you are studying a course which is longer than six months in length. The UK Government Visa Checker will allow you to check which via you need to study in the UK.
If you’re 16 or 17 and want to study at an independent school in UK, you may be eligible for a Child Student visa instead.
The scheme processes the applications of European Union citizens currently living in the UK to allow them to remain in the UK after Brexit went live on 21st January.
All international and EU students in the UK will be able to apply for the UK’s new Graduate VISA Route to stay in the UK for two years after their degree to work or look for work at any skill level.
If you are still unsure about how Brexit will affect your application to study in the UK, arrange a free consultation with SI-UK London and we can take you through all the facts you need to know.
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.
