Funding for EU/EEA/Swiss students who started their course in 20/21 or earlier will not experience any changes in their funding.

New students starting after 21/22 will be subject to the new regulations which came into force in 2021.

You may qualify for home fee status and the full student finance package (i,e funding towards living costs as well as tuition fees) if you are an EU/EEA/Swiss Migrant Worker with settled status and have been resident in the UK for 3 years prior to the start of your course.

As the regulations for students with pre-settled status are complex, please contact the Advice Centre for clarification about your entitlement to student finance.
