Brexit: information for current students

The UK is currently set to leave the EU in March 2019. In the meantime it will work with the rest of the EU to determine the exit terms. The University will work to secure terms that are best for our students and staff.

Immigration, travel and fee status

Your immigration and associated fee status have not changed as a result of the vote. The government has also confirmed that EU students starting at the University in 2018/19 or 2019/20 will be eligible for home fee status, which means that you will be charged the same tuition fees as UK students throughout the duration of your course. Our fees and funding web page has more information on tuition fees.

Student loans

EU students who are eligible under current rules to receive loans and grants from the Student Loans Company (SLC) will continue to do so for the duration of their course.

Postgraduate EU students will also continue to have access to loans for Master’s study. Further information about postgraduate loans is available on the fees and funding web page.

Erasmus+ and study abroad

There is no immediate change to our participation in Erasmus+.

The Draft Withdrawal Agreement confirms that UK universities will continue to be able to participate in the current Erasmus+ programme until its end date in December 2020 and that there will be no change in UK-EU immigration rules until 1 January 2021.

If the UK exits the EU without a deal, the situation may change. For further information read our No deal Brexit: information for Erasmus+ students page.

You can contact the Global Opportunities team with queries on Erasmus and study abroad.
