Previously, the Typical Student team told you how UK Universities Alarmed No-deal Brexit Will Drastically Hinder EU Student Enrolment. Now, the Guardian reports EU students entering English universities next year "will be eligible for domestic tuition fees and student loans for the duration of their course regardless of Brexit." The announcement was made by the UK Department for Education (DfE).
When Will The Change Come Into Action?
According to the announcement made by Chris Skidmore, the universities minister, "EU students would continue to be funded on the same basis as students in England for undergraduate and postgraduate courses starting in the 2020-21 academic year." University leaders welcomed the announcement. In April, the Scottish government said EU students applying for courses next year would be eligible for home student status.
Amount Of Tuition Fees For International Students
International student fees can range up to £15,000 a year higher than annual home student fees. As a result, the EU students will be eligible for student loans on annual tuition fees of £9,250 for undergraduate courses in England. Students who have lived for five years in the UK are also eligible for maintenance loans. Jess Cole, the director of policy for the Russell Group of research-intensive universities, emphasizes the fee status for tens of thousands of EU students has to be clarified.
