Brexit Advice at the UK University Fair
Worried by Brexit? Don’t be.
On Friday 31st January 2020 the UK formally left the European Union and is now in a transition period until December 31st 2020.
Brexit Facts for EU Students
- EU students applying to study in the UK for the 2020/21 academic year will continue to pay the same tuition fees as UK students and there will be no changes to loan eligibility.
- You will not need a visa if you are arriving before the official Brexit date.
- You will be eligible to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme if you are an EU national with a valid passport and are resident in the UK or arrive by 31 December 2020. If by the same date you have been continually living in the UK for 5 years, you will be able to apply to stay in the UK indefinitely (settled status).
- The recognition and esteem of a UK degree will not change in Europe or internationally.

Diversity at UK Universities
UK universities have always supported diversity, tolerance and internationalism and the UK remains one of the most welcoming destinations in the world for an EU student looking to gain a world class education.
All universities strongly believe that European and international students make a vital contribution to UK higher education and society as a whole.
