Students from countries in the European Union

Students from EU countries wishing to study in Wales could be eligible for a loan to cover the tuition fees from Student Finance Wales. Below will explain more about what is available to students from EU Countries.


Current students and those applying to start study in the remainder of the 2016/17 academic year

EU nationals or their family members, currently in higher or further education, and who are eligible to receive loans and/or grants from Student Finance Wales ('SFW') will continue to remain eligible for these loans and grants until they finish their course. This applies to all student finance provided to eligible EU students by SFW. This includes support to cover tuition fees, loans and grants for maintenance, and some other grants and allowances. These students are also entitled to home fee status. This also applies to students who have not yet started their course, but who will do so before the end of the 2016/17 Academic Year.


Students beginning study in the 2017/18 & 2018/19 academic years

There is no change to the eligibility rules regarding student support and home fee status applying to EU nationals, or their family members, who wish to enter the UK to study a course in Wales which starts in either the 2017/18 or the 2018/19 Academic Year and which attracts student support. Student Finance Wales (SFW) will assess these applications against existing eligibility criteria, and will provide loans and/or grants in the normal way. EU nationals, or their family members, who are assessed as eligible to receive grants and/or loans by SFW will then be eligible for this support and for home fee status for the duration of their course.
