UK Government announces two-year fees and funding promise for EU students

EU students at universities in England will continue to pay UK fees and receive UK funding until 2019-20.

Education Secretary Damian Hinds says EU students starting a master's or PhD programme in 2018-19 or 2019-20 will pay the same tuition fees as English students, and their access to support will be unchanged. This status will last for the duration of their degree courses, even for 3 year PhD programmes.
 
"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," said Damien Hinds.
 
"Today we are providing clarity and certainty on their fees for the duration of their courses."
 
Alistair Jarvis, Chief Executive of Universities UK said the announcement provides "much needed clarity for EU students and for universities".
