The UK Government has confirmed that EU students will continue to be eligible for ‘home fees’ for entry in September 2020 and therefore WILL continue to have access to financial support via student loans for the duration of their course. Further information can be found here. 

EU nationals who start a higher education course in England in the 2020/21 academic year will remain eligible for undergraduate and postgraduate financial support, Advanced Learner loans as well as FE and apprenticeships support, whether a deal for leaving the EU is in place or not.

2019/20 students

EU students can apply through Student Finance for a tuition fee loan in order to pay for your course, whilst you are studying towards your first undergraduate degree or PGCE.

This means that there is no need to pay any upfront tuition fees to go to university.

Any loans provided by Student Finance England only have to be repaid from the April after you have left the course and only if you are earning more than £25,725 per year.

If you are an EU student who has been living in England for more than 5 years prior to the start of your course, you can apply through Student Finance England for a maintenance loan to help you with your living costs, as well as a tuition fee loan.
