UK Leaving the European Union

Updated on 19 August 2020 

Studying at Northumbria following the UK decision to leave the European Union

In October 2019 EU leaders agreed to the UK Government’s request for an extension to remain as a member of the European Union until 31 January 2020.

The UK government has confirmed that EU students joining UK universities during the academic year 2019/20 and 2020/21 will continue to pay the same fees as UK students and have access to student loan funding.  The funding arrangements will remain in place for the duration of a student’s studies in the UK and will apply to both undergraduate and postgraduate students.   

The Government has also stated that it will underwrite any funding associated with the Erasmus+ programme for students currently on mobilities during the current academic year 2019/20 in a no-deal scenario.  Students who have applied to participate in the Erasmus+ programme in 2019/20 will be covered by the guarantee and the International Mobility Team are prepared to claim the grants for all students and staff travelling in the academic year 2019/20.

We understand that this is an unsettling time and we will continue to keep you informed of any changes should they be announced. We will be working continually to ensure you have the best experience at Northumbria.
