Brexit Guidance

The welfare and interests of our staff students is always our main priority and our commitment to internationalism remains unchanged. We will provide updates over the coming months about any changes which may impact our community as soon as possible.

Below you can find some key information and useful links to the most relevant websites and we recommend that students, staff and visitors refer to the UK Government website for the latest updates on travel to and from the UK. There is also information for international students on the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) website.

Will EU students require student visas after Brexit?

Current students have the opportunity to apply for 'pre-settled' or 'settled status' under the Government's EU Settled Status Scheme, for those wishing to remain in the UK beyond 31 December 2020.

What will happen to fees, funding and loans for non UK EU students?

The Government confirmed that EU students who have already started their studies will continue to pay UK fees for the duration of their studies. This covers undergraduate and postgraduate taught and research courses.  In May 2019 the UK Government confirmed that EU students starting in 2020/21 will remain eligible for undergraduate and postgraduate financial support. You can find more information in the announcement made by the UK Government.

Will I be able to work in the UK whilst being a student?

Yes, during the transition period the UK remains a member of the EU and remains bound by EU legislation. The Government has said that the rights of EU citizens to work in the EU will remain broadly the same after Brexit, in the eventuality of an agreed deal or even if there is no deal.

Will UK universities still be able to employ staff from EU/EAA countries?

Yes. There will be no change to the immigration status of EU staff who are already here or who arrive before the end of the Government's Brexit implementation period on 31 December 2020. This was confirmed in the Government's Statement of Intent on the EU Settlement Scheme.

If you have any queries or concerns, students can get in touch with us by emailing registry@aecc.ac.uk and Staff can email the HR team by emailing HRHelpdesk@aecc.ac.uk
