The funding bodies in England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, have all given reassurances to EU nationals about continuing student finance eligibility in light of the UK's referendum on leaving the EU. See Brexit: Impact on student finance.
Following earlier decisions by the funding bodies for 2016/17, there have since been some further assurances about continuing ‘home’ fee status eligibility for students:
Students starting in 2017/18
England confirmed that EU nationals (and their family members) who start studying in 2017/18 (that is, the current academic year), and who are assessed as eligible for loans/grants, will be eligible for 'home' fee status for the duration of their study. See England's 2017/18 statement.
Scotland have confirmed that tuition fee support will be provided in the normal way which, we understand, will tie-in with 'home' fee status eligibility.
Northern Ireland confirmed directly to us that EU nationals (and their family members) who start studying in 2017/18, and who are assessed as eligible for loans/grants, will be eligible for 'home' fee status until they finish their course.
Students starting in 2018/19
In March 2017, Scotland confirmed that "EU nationals choosing to study in Scotland and enrolling in 2018-19 have been guaranteed free tuition for the duration of their entire course". Again, we understand that this will tie-in with 'home' fee status eligibility. See Scotland's 2018/19 statement.
In April 2017, England confirmed the same funding package (as above) for EU students commencing study in 2018/19. See England's 2018/19 statement.
