Funding Continued for EU Students in 2020/21
We were delighted to hear last week from Universities Minister, Chris Skidmore, on the government’s stance on EU student funding for 2020/21.
Confirmation of financial support and home fee status for EU students starting university in the 2020/21 academic year were confirmed last week by the Universities Minister. EU nationals who start a higher education course in the 2020/21 academic year will remain eligible for undergraduate and postgraduate financial support, as well as Advanced Learner loans, whether a deal for leaving the EU is in place or not.
The statement from the Universities Minister also confirms that work to determine the future fee status for new EU students after 2020/21 academic year is ongoing.
Principal of AECC University College, Professor Lesley Haig commented: “As a University College which has a strong European presence and reputation, and values highly its international community of students and staff, we welcome this positive news. The confirmed position of ongoing support for EU students provides important reassurance for learners and their supporters. We also have a strong European and global reach through our excellent alumni, several of whom are in sector-leading positions within the chiropractic profession.”
