European Union students enrolling in English universities will pay the same tuition fees as UK students and remain eligible for financial support throughout the duration of their courses for at least one year after Brexit, according to an announcement by the UK’s Department for Education.
The UK government also says that it will freeze the maximum tuition fees universities can charge for the second consecutive year in 2019-20 at GBP 9,250.
In February, the Scottish government had confirmed that EU students would receive free university tuition in 2019-20.
Education Secretary Damian Hinds said: “Students from the EU make an important contribution to the universities sector and it is a testament to our system that so many students from abroad choose to come and study here. Today we are providing clarity and certainty on their fees for the duration of their courses.”
