As a 2nd year EU student, will I carry on paying EU fees?

There is no immediate change to your immigration status and associated fee status or to your access to student loans as a result of the vote. EU students who are already studying at the University of Birmingham or who have an offer to start their studies in 2017 will continue to be charged the UK fee rate applicable at the time, provided this continues to be permitted by UK law.

The fee status of EU students after the UK leaves the EU will depend on the outcome of the Brexit negotiations and what kind of relationship the UK agrees with the EU.

The Student Loans Company (SLC) has also confirmed that EU nationals or their family members, currently in higher education or starting a course in the 2017-18 academic year, and who are assessed as eligible to receive loans and/or grants from the SLC, will continue to receive these loans and grants until they finish their course. This applies to all student finance from the SLC for students in England for which EU nationals are eligible. This includes loans to cover tuition fees (for those resident in the EEA for three years), loans and grants for maintenance (limited to those resident in the UK for at least three years), and some other grants and allowances.
