Brexit: Analysis and FAQs


According to an announcement from the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills (28 June 2016):

The Master’s Loans launched today [28 June] are also still available to eligible EU students.

RCUK funding for EU students is secured for the coming academic year (2016-17), but will depend on the outcome of the UK's negotiations with the EU after that. RCUK's latest statement indicates that: "EU students are presently eligible for fees-only funding under Research Council support for postgraduate training. EU students eligible for RCUK support under current rules will continue to be eligible for RCUK fees-only support if currently undertaking or about to start in the 2016/17 academic year, and will continue to receive fees-only funding for the duration of their courses. Future funding arrangements for EU students will be determined as part of the UK’s discussions on its future relationship."
