The most important thing to remember for EU/EEA students is this: they will essentially pay the same as domestic UK students.
What does this mean? EU/EEA applicants to a UK university will pay fees capped at £9,250. EU/EEA students applying to the UK are also entitled to student loans to help them with the associated cost of study.
This is a good question. Luckily, there’s a fairly straightforward answer.
EU/EEA students applying to the UK will qualify for financial support if they meet any of the following criteria.
EU/EEA students applying to university in the UK are eligible for a tuition fee loan, which, as you may have guessed, helps to cover the cost of their tuition.
EU/EEA students won’t qualify for maintenance loans (the only exception is if students have been living permanently in the UK before starting their UK university degree).
The good news is that many academic and vocational courses will be eligible for student finance. These include a bachelor’s degree, an integrated masters’ degree, a teacher training degree, as well as vocational qualifications such as Higher National Certificates (HNCs) and Higher National Diplomas (HNDs).
As we’ve covered in our other guides to the UK, some aspects of university study in Scotland work differently from other regions of the country.
If you’re working with students who are preparing an application in Scotland, it’s worth noting that EU undergraduates studying in Scotland don’t have to pay any tuition fees at all. All £1,820 of their tuition fees will be covered by the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (or SAAS for short).
However, it’s worth noting that your EU applicants to Scotland will still have to pay for their cost of living while they are studying.
