EU Undergraduate Funding

You may be able to get a Tuition Fee Loan if you’re from an EU country.

Some EU students may also be able to claim maintenance funding from Student Finance England as well as the tuition fee loan. The procedure is complex and we strongly advise you talk with a Student Funding Team advisor before you start the process.

Advice to EU students

The UK Council for International Student Affairs has published the following advice for students on post-Brexit rules and entitlements.

EU students commencing study in 2020/21 must complete a paper application.  You will also need to provide supporting evidence with your application, information about which can be found in the Evidence Factsheet . Your application should be sent to the EU Team:

Student Finance Services
Student Loans Company
PO Box 89
Darlington
County Durham
DL1 9AZ
United Kingdom

If you are a continuing student (have previously received Student Finance) you will need to fill in the Continuing Student Application for 2020/21

Tuition Fee Loan

The loan is paid directly to your university or college. You have to pay it back. For a Full-Time studfent, this will be up to £9,250 for the 2020/21 academic year.

EU Migrant Workers

Some EU students may be able to claim maintenance funding from Student Finance England as well as the tuition fee loan. The procedure is complex and we strongly advise you talk with a Student Funding Team advisor before you start the process.

Eligibility

A student must be in the UK on the 1st September of the year their course starts (i.e. 1st September 2020 if your course started in September 2020) to be eligible for EU Migrant status, or have a qualifying parent (an EU citizen) living and working in the UK on 1st September of the year the student’s course starts if you wish to apply as the child of an EU migrant worker.

If this is not true then you will not qualify for maintenance funding.

Make sure that you return your declaration to Student Finance otherwise the payment of your loan may be delayed.
