More from our European students

There are so many social activities and events happening at the University throughout the year where you can truly cross cultures and make lifelong friends from all over the world.

Tuition fee loans and funding

The UK government has agreed 2019 tuition fee loans for undergraduate and postgraduate study.

To apply, you'll need to visit the UK government website for undergraduate study loans and postgraduate masters loans.

There are also some specific country funding schemes and opportunities available.

The loan depends on such factors as where you live, your course, where you're studying and whether you've studied a higher education course before.

Brexit – key facts

As an international university we welcome and value EU and international students, staff and partners.

We're proud of the part they play in the life of our university. Connecting globally is at the forefront of our strategy, and we're committed to offering all students internationally-focused education, opportunities and experiences.

Following the result of the EU referendum and the UK’s decision to trigger Article 50 of the Treaty of Lisbon, there has been no immediate change to UK universities, or to the status of current and prospective EU students.

There is currently no change for current and prospective international students.

It is worth noting that the referendum debate highlighted just how internationally focused the UK university sector is, with all polls of university academic staff indicating an overwhelming majority in favour of staying in the EU.

The UK government has triggered Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty which foresees a minimum of a two-year negotiation process between the UK and other member states, during which time the terms of the UK’s exit from the European Union will be decided. Throughout this period, the UK will maintain all aspects of current EU membership.
