Fees and Funding 

Students with an EU domicile beginning a course from 2021 onwards will no longer be eligible for home fee status, undergraduate, postgraduate and further education financial support from Student Finance England. However, you will now be eligible for our generous international scholarship package: International Scholarships

You may still be eligible for home fee status, funding and Student Finance support if you meet one of the following criteria:

  • You are able to benefit from the citizens rights agreements
  • EU Nationals who have successfully obtained settled or pre-settled status
  • You are an Irish national living in the UK or Republic of Ireland - benefits of Irish nationals under the Common Travel Area arrangement will continue
  • If you are a British or Irish National living in the EU/EEA or Switzerland and study in the UK before 2028

For further guidance, please visit the UKCISA - Guide to who pays 'home' fees


The UK's new and improved Student Route, which falls under the UK's new points-based immigration system, is open for applications.

Students from EU countries (including EEA and Switzerland) will need to successfully apply for a visa through the new system, ahead of arriving in the UK, if they are coming from 1 January 2021 onwards. 

EU/EEA/Swiss students who are already in the UK before 1 January 2021 should apply for the EU Settlement Scheme

For more information, please visit our Student Visas and Immigration web pages and our EU Students and Brexit pages.
