EU Students


How much are tuition fees for EU students?
Tuition fees for 2017/18 are £9,250 for all new full-time undergraduate courses.  

Is there help available to help me with the cost of tuition fees?
Students from the EU may be able apply for a tuition fee loan from Student Finance England (SFE) to cover the cost of tuition fees. You can apply for a tuition fee loan if you have been living within the EEA for the three years immediately before the start of your course and the main reason for being in the EEA was not for full time education.

Is there any other support available to help me with living costs?
You may be able to apply for help with living costs if you meet certain residency conditions:

  • you have lived in the UK or Islands (the UK plus the Channel Islands and Isle of Man ) for more than five* years; or
  • you qualify for financial help in the UK through EEA or Swiss migrant worker status, or as the child of someone who has Turkish worker status

However, there are exceptions.  For more detailed information about residency conditions and what you might be eligible to apply for visit the Gov.uk website.

*please note that from 2016/17 students form the EU starting a new course must meet five years ordinary residence in order to qualify for maintenance support. Students who enrolled before 2016/17 and met the three years residency to qualify for maintenance support will retain this.

How do I apply?
EU students attending a new course in 2017/18 should complete the EU16N form.  EU students continuing a course should complete the EUPR1A form.  Separate application forms are available for EU students studying part time.
