The UK government has today confirmed that EU students commencing studies at UK universities in 2017 will continue to be eligible for student loans for the entire duration of their studies.
The decision will mean that students applying to study in 2017 will not only be eligible for the same funding and support as they are now, but that their eligibility will continue throughout their course, even if the UK exits the European Union during that period.
This confirmation follows on from Trinity Laban’s commitment to continue to charge UK rates to EU students starting in 2017, also for the entire duration of their studies.
Professor Anthony Bowne, Principal of Trinity Laban, said:
"We are all incredibly proud and honoured to have so many European students and staff. In fact, we have one of the highest percentages of EU students of any university in the country. I'm delighted to make this pledge to our European friends, so that future generations of students can continue to contribute to our wonderful international community."
