Fees and Funding
For the 2018/19 academic year, EU students will be charged £9,000 for a full time undergraduate degree. If you’re a European Union (EU) national you can normally apply for financial help towards the costs of your tuition fees whilst studying in Wales. You won't be eligible for maintenance support, although if you are a migrant worker, a family member of a migrant worker or the child of a Turkish worker living and working in the UK, you may qualify for help with tuition fees find out more here.
How will the UK leaving the EU affect my tuition fees and loan entitlement?
EU nationals or their family members, currently in higher or further education, and who are eligible to receive loans and/or grants from Student Finance Wales ('SFW') will continue to remain eligible for these loans and grants until they finish their course. This applies to all student finance provided to eligible EU students by SFW. This includes support to cover tuition fees, loans and grants for maintenance, and some other grants and allowances. These students are also entitled to home fee status.
Students beginning study in 2017/18
As for students studying in the 2017/18 Academic Year, the eligibility rules regarding student support and home fee status applying to EU nationals, or their family members, who wish to enter the UK to study a course in Wales which starts in 2017/18 and which attracts student support, are also unchanged. SFW will assess these applications against existing eligibility criteria, and will provide loans in the normal way. EU nationals, or their family members, who are assessed as eligible to receive loans by SFW will then be eligible for this support and for home fee status for the duration of their course.
For EU students that plan to start their course after the UK has left the European Union, fees and loan entitlements will depend on what is agreed as part of the UK’s exit negotiations.
Regardless of the outcome of the negotiations, Wrexham Glyndwr will continue to welcome students from across the globe.
