Will the UK leaving the EU affect my ability to continue to have a student loan?

If you are a current EU student 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.

The UK Government has also confirmed that students from the EU applying to courses starting in the 2017-18 and 2018-19 academic years will not see any changes to their loan eligibility or fee status. This guarantee will apply for the full duration of the course, even if the course finishes after the UK has left the EU.

The longer-term implications for EU students who want to apply to study in the UK after the UK has left the EU will depend on the outcome of the negotiations and what kind of relationship the UK agrees with the EU. We are working across the Higher Education sector to urge UK Government to provide clarity on EU students' fees and access to student funding support beyond the 2018-2019 academic year.
