EU referendum statement
Ravensbourne is a global, open and inclusive place of learning and our student community is enriched by students from Europe and other parts of the world.
With a strong history of welcoming students and industry partners from across the globe, the result of the recent referendum does not change our view.
We remain committed to reaching out to creative individuals and companies on the global stage.
Barring any unilateral action from the UK government, we do not forsee any immediate impact on current EU staff or students at Ravensbourne.

Future EU students holding an offer at Ravensbourne
21 April 2017
EU students applying for places in the 2018 to 2019 academic year will remain eligible for financial support.
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 academic year 2018 to 2019.
The decision means EU students applying for an undergraduate or master’s course at an English university or further education institution in the 2018 to 2019 academic year will continue to have access to student loans and grants, even if the course concludes after the UK’s exit from the EU.
EU students are eligible for home fee status, which means they are charged the same tuition fees as UK students. Other non-EU, international students do not have their tuition fees capped in this way.
Further information can be found at gov.uk.
