Update on financial support for EU students
The UK government announced that it will continue financial support for European Union students in the 2017/18 and 2018/19 academic years. Read the full announcement on the government website
Reacting to the announcement, Professor Sir Paul Curran, President, said:
"Our international students are valuable members of the University community and contribute to our rich, cosmopolitan and diverse culture. Around a fifth of our students are from the European Union and our commitment to our European students, colleagues and partners has not changed with the referendum result. This announcement from the government provides a very positive message to our European students that ‘London is open’ and I look forward to welcoming them in person to City in the future.”
The announcement means that students from the EU will retain their 'home fee' status - which means they are charged the same tuition fees as UK students - for 2017/18 entry and 2018/19 entry.
In addition, the Student Loans Company has confirmed that EU students starting a degree in the 2017/18 and 2018/19 academic years will continue to have access to funding support for the duration of their studies. The Student Loans Company website is the definitive source of funding information.
