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.

  • Current EU students, EU students who are starting in the 2016/17 academic year and EU students starting in 2017/18: your immigration status and associated fee status, as well as your access to student loans, have not changed as a result of the vote. The UK Government has confirmed this will remain the case for the duration of your course. 
  • 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.

You can also read the Government’s guarantee regarding EU nationals and student loans/grants for further information. You may also be interested to read University UK’s statement on the referendum result.

As further details become available, we’ll publish them on this page. If you are worried about anything, please contact us at
