What has changed for international students since Brexit?

The UK officially left the European Union in January 2020, and this has meant a range of changes for students from the EU wishing to study in the UK. From tuition fees to health insurance to study abroad opportunities, Brexit has affected a variety of different things for European students.

It’s important to note that in most cases, Brexit hasn’t affected tuition fees and funding for international students from outside the EU/European Economic Area at this point in time, unless stated otherwise.

Tuition fees

From 1 August 2021, students coming from the EU/EEA will no longer be eligible for home fee status. This means that instead of paying the £9,250 a year that UK domestic students pay for tuition fees, EU/EEA students will have to pay international student fees. The amount will usually depend on the university and the course that you apply to, but it can be between £10,000 and £30,000 a year for an undergraduate degree.

Master’s and postgraduate tuition fees for international students are on average about £11,000 a year. They could be as low as £8,000 but may also be as high as £30,000 depending on the university and course you apply for.

Tuition fees for students from outside the EU/EEA have not been affected by Brexit.

Student funding

Brexit has also meant that EU/EEA students are no longer able to apply for a student loan in the UK. This means that they cannot apply for a tuition fee or maintenance loan from the UK Student Loans Company.

There may be other funding options, such as scholarships for international students or hardship funds at your prospective university, that you may be able to apply for. Always speak to your prospective university to find out what options you have, or consider exploring various government scholarships such as Chevening or GREAT scholarships.
