Wales guarantees EU student funding

European Union nationals applying to study at Welsh universities in the 2018-19 academic year will be eligible for financial support, the nation’s government has confirmed.

Kirsty Williams, the Welsh education secretary, announced on 24 April that students who currently receive loans, and prospective students planning on applying, will continue to be eligible for loans and grants.

“This decision not only provides welcome certainty for our universities and colleges regarding future funding, but also assures prospective EU students they will not have the terms of their funding changed if the UK leaves the EU during their studies," Williams said.
