Financial support for EU students

Financial support for EU students

21 April 2017

EU students applying for university places in the 2018/19 academic year will remain eligible for financial support.

The University of Hertfordshire looks forward to welcoming students from the European Union and beyond as planned for the new term in the academic year 2018/19.

The government has today (21 April 2017) confirmed that EU students will continue to remain eligible for undergraduate, master's, postgraduate and advanced learner financial support in the academic year 2018 to 2019.

The Student Loans Company has confirmed that EU students who are eligible under current rules to receive loans and grants will continue to do so for the duration of the course they are currently enrolled on or due to start in September 2018.

Universities and Science Minister Jo Johnson said:

"A key part of our success is attracting talent from across the globe. This will provide reassurance to the brightest minds from across Europe to continue applying to study in the UK, safe in the knowledge financial assistance is available if needed."

EU students are still eligible for home fee status, which means they are charged the same tuition fees as UK students.

EU students who are eligible under current rules to receive loans and grants from the Student Loans Company will continue to do so for courses they are currently enrolled on or about to start up until 2018 entry. EU students will continue to receive funding for the duration of their courses.

I would like to reiterate that the University of Hertfordshire remains firmly committed to taking an international approach to everything we do. The University will continue to play an important role as a point of contact for fellow students and researchers around the world.
