Information for EU students

Latest information for current students from the EU and Erasmus+ exchange to or from Glasgow. 

Undergraduate students

There is no change as a result of the vote for the UK to leave the EU. Your immigration status has not changed as a result of the referendum. The fee levels that you are currently charged have not changed as a result of the referendum, and neither has your entitlement to any support you may currently receive from the Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS).

The Scottish Government has confirmed, following the referendum, that "there has been no change in current funding arrangements and that eligible EU students already studying in Scotland or commencing their studies in the coming months will continue to benefit from free tuition and, for those who meet the residency requirement, associated living cost support."

This is also the case for students with dual nationality, i.e. domiciled outside the EU but holding an EU passport.

Postgraduate research students

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.

For more information please see the Research Councils UK statement on international collaboration
