Brexit Updates for EU Students

UK Universities and EU Students

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. Learn more below with our FAQ and if you have any questions, please contact SI-UK London and we will be happy to help.

Brexit FAQ

- Will EU students still pay the same tuition fees as home students?

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.

- Will EU students have to apply for a student visa?

You will not need a visa if you are arriving before the official Brexit date. You may need to register on arrival in the UK if you will be staying for more than three months.

- What is the EU Settlement Scheme?

You will be eligible to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme if you are an EU national with a valid passport and are resident in the UK or arrived by 31 December 2020. If by the same date you have been continually living in the UK for 5 years, you will be able to apply to stay in the UK indefinitely (settled status).

- Will a UK degree still be recognised in the EU?

The recognition and esteem of a UK degree will not change in Europe or internationally.
