EU students applying to start courses at English universities in 2017-18 will continue to be eligible for funding for their whole course, the government has guaranteed.
The Department for Education announced the move today, saying that the funding guarantee will mean that “their eligibility will continue throughout their course, even if the UK exits the European Union during that period”.
We are aware that news of the referendum may cause anxiety for some people considering or currently studying and working at Richmond. Following the outcome of the EU referendum, Richmond, The American University in London’s primary concern is to continue welcoming students from all over the world and provide support for the successful completion of their studies.
If it is your intention to join us at Richmond in 2017, whatever country you are from, we will welcome you. Both the UK Government and the Student Loan Company (SLC) have confirmed that undergraduate loan funding eligibility criteria remains unchanged for new and continuing students. Our 2017/18 fees will not change during the course of study and there will be no foreseeable impact on the immigration status of EU students.
