Brexit information for students and applicants

The University will continue to monitor advice and guidance for applicants being issued by Universities UK and the UK Council for International Student Affairs. Universities UK have compiled some useful FAQs for EU and EEA student applicants.

Tuition fees and student loans - new students

The UK Government has confirmed that EU nationals who start a higher education course in England in the 2020/21 academic year will remain eligible for undergraduate and postgraduate financial support, for the full duration of their course. You can find information about the announcement on the website.


If you are a UWE Bristol student due to receive an Erasmus+ grant for work or study during the 2019/20 academic year, your Erasmus+ funding will not be affected by Brexit.

Please see our travel advice for more information.

If you are a student at an Erasmus+ partner University, you will be very welcome to join us on exchange during the 2019/20 academic year. Please refer to your home University’s Exchange Office for further details regarding the selection and nomination process. See more information about coming to UWE Bristol as an exchange student.
