If you are a student from the EU, EEA or Switzerland starting your course in academic 2023–24, you will generally have to pay international student fees for your course, unless you are covered by one of the specific withdrawal agreements. If you are an EU national who has settled or pre-settled status or an Irish citizen living in the UK or Ireland, you are likely to be eligible to pay home fees for your course.
Our admissions team will assess your fee status once you have applied to us.
In general, if you are an EU national starting your course in academic year 2023–24 you will no longer be eligible for a student loan for undergraduate or postgraduate studies, unless you are covered by one of the withdrawal agreements.
If you are an EU national who has settled status under the European Union Settlement Scheme, you are likely to be eligible for a tuition loan and a maintenance loan.
If you have pre-settled status or are an Irish citizen, you are likely to be eligible for a tuition fee loan only.
In all cases, you will also need to meet the Student Finance England residency criteria based on where you are ordinarily resident when you start your course and where you have been living in the three years before the first day of your course.
You should check the residency criteria which apply to your situation on the gov.uk website for Student Finance.
If you will be studying an eligible postgraduate masters or doctoral degree, check eligibility criteria on the gov.uk website for postgraduate study.
You are advised to view the Student Finance England information for full details of eligibility criteria.
Self-funding EU students who pay international fees will be eligible to apply for an International Scholarship towards their first year of study.
