Brexit: information for current students

Latest news

Wednesday 30 October 2019

The EU has granted another extension to the Brexit deadline until 31 January 2020 meaning the UK will not now leave the EU on 31 October. 

A General Election has been called for 12 December, to decide the next Government. The outcome of this election will affect the approach taken to Brexit.

We are continuing to monitor the ongoing parliamentary discussions and will provide any new information as it becomes available to support you.

Immigration and travel

Your immigration and associated fee status have not changed as a result of the UK’s decision to leave the European Union.

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 without a deal then the situation will change and you can find more information here about a No Deal Brexit.

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