No immediate changes to immigration rules affecting EU students in the UK

Following on from the announcement by the Student Loans Company and the Minister for Universities that EU citizens currently studying in the UK or starting their courses in September 2016 will continue to receive loans until they finish their courses, it is good news that the Government has now confirmed that there are no immediate changes to immigration rules affecting EU staff or students in the UK, and there are also no changes to immigration rules affecting our staff and students working or studying in the EU. 

At this stage we cannot say what future changes may be made, but given the Minister’s position that EU students are welcome in the UK and the announcements about fees made above, it is unlikely that changes would be made to immigration policy that would affect current students.  The Higher Education sector would strongly oppose any such changes and will be watching this area closely.
