UK Leaving the European Union

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

Current and potential students from European Union countries may have a number of queries about studying at Northumbria University, following the outcome of the European Union Referendum in the UK.

We would like to reassure you that nothing has changed with regards to studying in the UK for the 2016/17 academic year or the 2017/18 academic year.

Leaving the EU will not happen overnight and there will not be any immediate change to the UK university sector.

There is no reason for EU students to assume there will be any change to immigration status, funding, scholarships and tuition fees during this period. Those students on Erasmus programmes will still have access to their Erasmus grant until at least as long as the UK remains a member of the EU.

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.
