Overseas Students: Finance

Question for Department for Education

To ask the Secretary of State for Education, whether EU citizens with confirmed places at university will continue to be funded for the duration of their courses in the event that the UK leaves the EU without a deal.

To help give certainty in July 2018 we announced guarantees on student finance for EU nationals.

These guarantees apply in the event that the UK leaves the EU without a deal: EU nationals (and their family members) who start a course in England in the 2019/20 academic year or before will continue to be eligible for ‘home fee’ status and student finance support from Student Finance England for the duration of their course, provided they meet the residency requirement.
