We appreciate that following the 2016 referendum vote for the UK to withdraw from the EU, you might have some questions. We’ve put some of the more common ones below, but if you need more help, drop us a line at admissions@uea.ac.uk or telephone +44 (0)1603 591515.

We are working with Universities UK to get answers to the longer-term questions and to press our Government to ensure the UK remains a welcoming place for students from EU countries. Please refer back to this page for updates. The information on this page is correct as of: 14/06/2019.

How will Brexit affect the immigration status of EU students?

Until the Treaty on European Union (commonly referred to as the 'Lisbon Treaty') negotiations are completed, there will be no change to the immigration status of EU students.

How will finance for EU students be affected?

EU students starting an undergraduate or master’s course at an English university in the 2020/21 academic year will have guaranteed home fee status and financial support for the duration of their course. This means they are charged the same tuition fees as UK students, even if their course concludes after the UK’s exit from the EU.

How will the ERASMUS+ exchange programme be affected?


The European Commission has confirmed that EU law continues to apply to the full in the UK until it is no longer a member. This therefore also applies to the projects financed through the Erasmus+ programme.

The National Agency for Erasmus+ in the UK supports continued full membership of the programme for the UK through to 2020. The UK Government has confirmed that it will underwrite grant agreements for Erasmus+ signed while the UK is still a Member State, even if payments continue beyond the point of the UK's EU exit date.
