The Department for Education has today (Tuesday 11 October) announced that European Union students applying for university places in the 2017 to 2018 academic year will still have access to student funding support.
The Government’s press release states that:
‘EU students applying for a place at an English university or further education institution in the 2017 to 2018 academic year will continue to be eligible for student loans and grants – and will be for the duration of their course.
‘The decision will mean that students applying to study from 2017 to 2018 will not only be eligible for the same funding and support as they are now, but that their eligibility will continue throughout their course, even if the UK exits the European Union during that period.
Further information is available on the Government website.
