Help your EU students to prepare for 2021/22

26 November 2020

EU students starting courses on or after 1 August 2021 must have settled or pre-settled status in the UK under the EU Settlement Scheme to get student finance. This does not apply to students who are Irish citizens.

The application deadline for the EU Settlement Scheme is 30 June 2021, but the student must have started living in the UK by 31 December 2020.

It’s important that your EU students are aware of this requirement before applying for student finance, otherwise they will not be eligible for funding from us.

You should encourage EU students to visit the EU Settlement Scheme information guide on for more information on how to apply.
