Following the result of the UK's EU Referendum, the Minister for Universities and Science, Jo Johnson, confirmed in a statement issued on Monday 27 June 2016 that students from EU countries currently at UK universities will continue to receive student loan support for the normal duration of their studies.
The government has also just announced (April 2017) that EU students applying for university places in the 2018 to 2019 academic year will remain eligible for financial support.
- EU students will continue to remain eligible for undergraduate, master’s, postgraduate and advanced learner financial support in academic year 2018 to 2019. 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.
- EU students are eligible for home fee status, which means they are charged the same tuition fees as UK students. Other non-EU, international students do not have their tuition fees capped in this way.
- EU nationals will also remain eligible to apply for Research Council PhD studentships at UK institutions for 2018 to 2019 to help cover costs for the duration of their study.
More information about the latest announcements can be found on the Government's website.
Further fee information for EU students applying for undergraduate study is available from the Department for Education and Skills and on our website. Universities UK and The British Council have produced a useful document for EU students coming to the UK either as a full-time student or as an exchange student. The document can be accessed here
Aston is committed to our EU students and we want to reassure all applicants that Aston continues to value all our students from outside the UK, who are an essential component of our campus life and our academic community.
