Now that the United Kingdom has officially left the European Union (EU), there are some changes to your status and rights as an EU student wishing to live and study in the UK. Below is some helpful information on what that means for you as an EU national.
Citizens of the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland who were living in the UK on or before 31 December 2020 can apply to the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS).
The EUSS means citizens of the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland will be able to stay and continue to work, study and access benefits and services such as NHS healthcare broadly on the same basis as they currently do. It is free to apply. If you want to stay in the UK you’ll have until 30 June 2021 to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme. Thankfully, you can apply with any smartphone using their online app.
EU nationals that have arrived in the UK before 31st December 2020 have until 30th June 2021 to apply for the EUSS. Those that arrive after 31st December 2020 will need to apply for a student visa under the new Points Based System (PBS).
More information can be found on the UK Government website about the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) and the Student Visa and Points Based System (PBS). You can also use the government’s Visa Questionnaire to check your own personal circumstances.
If you are an Irish national, Brexit will not change your status as Irish nationals are automatically deemed to hold settled status in the UK. This means you are not required to do anything as a result of Brexit and you would be eligible for Student Finance subject to meeting the normal eligibility requirements.
The process for determining your Fee status and Financial eligibility is determined by a number of factors.
Those students who are currently living in the UK who are from the EEA or Switzerland and have Settled status are eligible for ‘Home’ fee status and tuition fee/maintenance loan support with 3+ years’ residency.
Those students who are currently living in the UK who are from the EEA or Switzerland with Pre-settled status and 3+ years’ residency in the UK, Gibraltar, EEA and Switzerland are also eligible for ‘Home’ fee status and tuition fee/maintenance loan support.
Our Admissions team will be able to assess your tuition fee status during the application process.
Further information can be found on the following websites:
Gov.uk contains extensive information, advice and guidance on coming to study in the UK. This is also where you would start your application for either the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) or a Student Visa
The UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) offers advice for international students in the UK
Universities UK (UUK) is the Higher Education sector’s representative body, providing guidance for university staff and students
