Just like UK students, most EU undergraduates are eligible to receive a Tuition Fee Loan from the British Government – providing they have not previously studied at university or have a degree. Students from the EU are not, however, eligible for any other forms of support such as Maintenance Loans or Maintenance Grants.
The government has announced that EU students applying for a place at an English university or further education institution in the 2017 to 2018 academic year will continue to be eligible for student loans and grants – and will be for the duration of their course.
The decision will mean that students applying to study from 2017 to 2018 will not only be eligible for the same funding and support as they are now, but that their eligibility will continue throughout their course, even if the UK exits the European Union during that period.
