Information for EU students

The UK is due to leave the European Union, which is likely to lead to changes to the system for students coming to the UK to study.

We know that EU, EEA and Swiss students who want to study in the UK may be concerned about issues such as fees and immigration. We can assure you that:

  • your fees will be the same as the UK student fees in the 2020/21 academic year
  • you can still apply for student loans, and a range of ARU scholarships
  • EU undergraduate students will continue to be eligible for our £800 Undergraduate Bursary
  • assuming the UK leaves the EU with a deal, there is no immediate change to your immigration status.

Questions or concerns?

If you're already studying at ARU and want to talk, our International Student Advice Service can help. 

You'll find us on campus in Cambridge and Chelmsford. There's no need to book an appointment, just drop in from 10am–12 noon, Monday–Friday.

Alternatively you can contact us by email or phone.

Government confirms funding for EU students

In May 2019, the UK Government confirmed funding for EU students starting university courses in the 2020/21 academic year.

This means that EU students applying for an undergraduate or Masters course at an English university will continue to have access to student loans and grants, even if the course concludes after the UK's exit from the European Union.

PhD students remain eligible to apply for UK Research Council studentships for the duration of their study.

Please visit the UK Council for International Student affairs (UKCISA) for the latest advice and guidance for EU students.
