No change to EU student fees

Although it’s going to take some time to understand the full impact and resulting changes following the EU referendum, the vote to leave the EU does not mean there will be any immediate changes for our university, our students or our staff. 

Our EU students, projects, partnerships and relationships remain as much of a key component of our future as they were before the referendum.  As a university, we remain totally committed to the EU.

We’d like to reassure you that nothing has changed with respect to your status as it stands at present and that this will remain the case until the Government decides otherwise. The full process of change is likely to take more than two years.

  • Current EU students and EU students who have been offered a place to start in academic year 2016/17: your immigration status and associated fee status, as well as your access to student loans, have not changed as a result of the vote. This will remain the case until the Government decides otherwise.
  • UK students studying in the EU and elsewhere under the Erasmus programme: your immigration status has not changed, you’ll continue to be eligible for your Erasmus grant until further notice.

We can also confirm that we will not change the published tuition fees for 2016-17 for EU students. EU students who are registered in 2016/17 (either as a new or continuing student) will continue to be charged the UK students’ home rate for tuition fees for all subsequent years of their programme.

  • You can also read the Government’s guarantee regarding EU nationals and student loans/grants for further information.
  • As further details become available, we’ll publish them on this page.
