The UK is a popular choice for overseas students. If you’re an EU national or the family member of an EU national, you might qualify for help from Student Finance England (SFE) towards your tuition fees and living costs. However, if you’re from outside the EU then you’ll not normally be eligible for any financial support from SFE.

Depending on your circumstances, you may qualify for:

  • help with tuition fees

  • help with tuition fees and ‘additional help’ – for example, living costs Tuition Fees

 

To qualify for a Tuition Fee Loan, the following needs to apply:

  • you’re an EU national, or the family member of an EU national

  • you’ve lived in the EEA or Switzerland for three years or more before your course starts

  • you’ll be living in the UK on the first day of the academic year in which your course starts

  • your course qualifies

 

Does your course qualify?

Your course must take place at one of the following:

  • a UK university

  • a college that receives government funding

  • a private institution offering specifically designated higher education courses (ask your university or college if it qualifies)

  • a group of schools taking part in the School-Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) scheme

  • Your course must lead to one of the following qualifications:

  • degree (like a BA, BSc or BEd) – you may not qualify if you already have one

  • foundation degree

  • Diploma of Higher Education (DipEd)

  • Higher National Diploma (HND)

  • Higher National Certificate (HNC)

  • Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE)

  • Initial Teacher Training (ITT)

 

Additional help

Some EU nationals may qualify for a Tuition Fee Loan and additional help, but usually only if all of the following apply:

  • you’re an EU national, or the family member of someone who is

  • you’ve lived in the UK for three years or more before your course starts

  • you’ll be living in the UK on the first day of the academic year in which your course starts

  • usually your main reason for living in the UK was not to receive full-time education

  • your course qualifies

  • If you qualify for this level of help, the application process is different. You need to apply in the same way as students from England.

 

EEA and Swiss migrant workers

You may qualify for help with tuition fees and additional help if all of the following apply:

  • you’re a national from an EEA country or Switzerland

  • you’re working in the UK

  • you’ve lived in the EEA or Switzerland for three years or more before your course starts

  • you’ll be living in the UK on the first day of the academic year in which your course starts

  • your course qualifies

  • You may also qualify if you’re a family member of an EEA or Swiss migrant worker.

 

Children of Turkish workers

You may qualify for help with tuition fees and additional help if all of the following apply:

  • you’re the child of a Turkish national who usually lives and works in the UK

  • you’ve lived in the EEA, Switzerland or Turkey for three years or more before your course starts

  • you’ll be living in the UK on the first day of the academic year in which your course starts
