Following the government announcement on Friday 21 April 2017, The University of Bolton is delighted to confirm that EU students applying for places in the 2018-19 academic year will remain eligible for financial support. Details of the announcement can be found here.

The government has confirmed that EU students will continue to remain entitled for undergraduate, master’s, postgraduate and advanced learner financial support in academic year 2018-19.

The decision means EU students applying for an undergraduate or master’s course at an English university or further education institution in the 2018-19 academic year will continue to have access to student loans and grants, even if the course concludes after the UK’s exit from the EU.

EU students are eligible for home fee status, which means they are charged the same tuition fees as UK students.

Other non-EU, international students do not have their tuition fees capped in this way.

EU nationals will also remain eligible to apply for Research Council PhD studentships at UK institutions for 2018-19 to help cover costs for the duration of their study.

The University of Bolton has a proud history of welcoming students from across the EU to study here. For further information relating to EU admissions and the dates for opportunities to visit us, please see the European Union information here.
