The following information is for students coming in the academic year 2021-2022 (usually September/ October 2021 to June/July 2022).

Government Student Support and 'home' fee status eligibility

An announcement about the regulations in England which determine eligibility for 'home' fee status and student support for EU/EEA/Swiss citizens and their family members commencing a course in the academic year 2021/22 was made on 23 June 2020. There have not yet been announcements from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. See Brexit: Impact on student finance and Brexit: Impact on fee status assessments for information.


There will be a new immigration system (expected to be in place from 1 January 2021). Anyone intending to come to the UK from January 2021 will need to apply under the relevant category of the immigration Rules in place at that time. We'll update this page as we get information.
