Government confirms funding for EU students


Financial support for UK and EU students

It has been announced (02 July 2018) that tuition fees have been frozen for a second year and home fee status confirmed for EU students in 2019/20.

Damian Hinds, Education Secretary, confirmed that the maximum tuition fees that a university will be able to charge will be frozen for the second year running to cover the academic year of 2019/20. This will enable more students the access higher education or training.

It was also confirmed by the government that students from within the European Union who start a course in England in 2019/20 will still be eligible for ‘home fee status’. This means EU students will be charged the same amount for tuition fees as students from within the UK.

The financial support will be available to both undergraduate and postgraduate courses at institutions in England, as well as support at postgraduate level from UK Research and Innovation.
