UK government guarantees domestic tuition fees for course duration to 2020 entrants

The Department for Education has announced that it will extend home fee status for European Union (EU) nationals starting a Higher Education study programme in England in 2020/21.

Whether or not the UK secures a deal for leaving the EU, EU students will continue to be eligible for:

  • UK undergraduate and/or postgraduate tuition fees for the duration of their study programme
  • Undergraduate and/or postgraduate financial support

At a conference in Brussels, Minister for Universities, Science, Research and Innovation Chris Skidmore said that clarity over fees and funding would give EU applicants "the certainty they need to make their choice".

The news is warmly welcomed at Trinity Laban, where students from around the world add to the rich tapestry of student life.

Professor Anthony Bowne, Principal, commented – 

“Our student body includes artists from more than 60 countries. We are 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. We’re looking forward to future generations of students continuing to contribute to our wonderful international community.”

Applications for Trinity Laban’s Music, Dance and Musical Theatre programmes starting in September 2020 will open on Thursday 18 July 2019.
