EU Students in the UK are not going to Pay More Immediately after Brexit. EU students who still want to study in the United Kingdom after Brexit are not going to pay for it immediately, reports MAG Mania.
The British education minister Damian Hinds reported this Monday to news website iNews.
The tuition fee of British universities for EU students will not exceed that of British students in the academic year 2019-2020. This amount remains the same throughout the study programs.
Students from the European Union also still have access to the same assistance. The Scottish government had promised this before.
British universities were worried that the number of students and the amount of funding would be significantly reduced if no Brexit deal were to be closed. Currently, there are 135,000 EU students in the United Kingdom.
According to the BBC, the decision also seen as a guide to the European Union for the upcoming Brexit discussions. British universities hope to maintain access to part of European grant funds.
How high the tuition fee for EU students will be after the academic year 2019-2020 is still unknown. If students from the European Union regarded as overseas students, the tuition fees would be much higher.
