EU and EEA students starting courses at English universities from 1 August 2021 onwards will no longer be eligible for loans and support from Student Finance English. The exemptions to this are Irish Nationals living in the UK or Ireland who will be eligible and those who benefit from citizen's rights agreements who will still be eligible. This includes students with settled and pre-settled status as confirmed by the UK government as long as they meet the wider eligiblity criteria.
We also recommend that you look at our available Scholarships and Bursaries when they are updated for 2021 entry. You can also find more information about other external scholarships from Study UK.
EU and EEA students starting their course in 2020-21 at an English higher education institution will continue to be eligible for financial support from Student Finance England for the entire duration of their course. At Brunel, our applicants starting courses in January 2020 may be eligible, in line with the existing regulations from Student Finance England. You are advised to check your eligibility on the government website here.
