UK Leaving the European Union

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

The United Kingdom will leave the European Union on 29th March 2019.  However, the UK government has confirmed that EU students joining UK universities during the academic year 2019/20 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 2018/19 in a no-deal scenario.  Students who have applied to participate in the Erasmus+ programme in 2019/20 will not be able to use EU funding but this will be subject to the deal/no deal decision made on 29th March. This has not been confirmed by the European Commission yet. Please check this page for regular updates as we approach the UK’s withdrawal date of 29th March.

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.
