Key stakeholders and education groups have welcomed the UK government’s announcement that EU students attending universities in England will continue to pay the same fees as home students in the first intake after Brexit. But there has been no decision on how EU students in the UK will be treated in the long-term.
The Scottish government made a similar commitment to EU students back in February
In a statement, UK Education secretary Damian Hinds said EU undergraduate students starting in autumn 2019 will pay the same tuition fees as English students and their access to support and student loans will remain unchanged.
“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,” Hinds said.
