Funding for European Union Students
Students from other European Union countries will usually pay the 'home' rate of tuition fee for their undergraduate course.
undergraduate European Union students can take out a Tuition Fee Loan to pay
their fees. Part-time undergraduate European Union students can also take out a
loan for tuition fees if their course started in September 2012 or later.
Some EU students may be eligible for living cost support too:
- If they are resident in England at the start of the course and have been living in the UK and Islands for three years or more, for courses which started before September 2016
- If they are resident in England and have lived in the UK for five years or more, for courses which start after September 2016
- PLEASE NOTE: Students who are starting a new course in September 2016, and applied for funding on or before 24th March 2016 could also be eligible for living cost support if they have lived in the UK for three years or more before the start of their course.
- If they, or a family member, are a migrant worker from the EEA or Switzerland
- If they are settled in the UK because they have acquired the right of permanent residence.
- If they are the child of a Swiss National; or they are the child of a 'Turkish worker'
