CONEL recognises and values the contribution EU students make to the local community and UK economy.
The result of EU referendum has raised a number of questions about the future of further and higher education, particularly from those from the European Union who are looking to study in the UK.
The formal process to leave the EU will begin when the Prime Minister decides to trigger Article 50 and is expected to take two years. There will be no immediate change to the immigration status of current EU students or those about to start a course in the coming academic year 2016/17.
The longer term implications for EU students for the next academic year (from 2017/18 onwards) will depend on the outcome of negotiations between the UK and the EU.
The Student Loans Company offers financial support to students, such as 19 Plus Advanced Loans, and funding for HND, HNC and degree programmes. EU nationals currently studying here, and who are eligible to receive loans or grants, will continue to receive these until the end of their course.
