Part-time EU students

Application forms for part-time funding are usually available from the summer before you start your course. 

New EU part-time entrants can apply for:

  • Part-time tuition fee loan (repayable).

Returning EU part-time students who started their course before 2012 can receive:

  • a fee grant (non-repayable) to help with the costs of their tuition fees.

Are you eligible for full UK funding?

Some EU and Swiss worker students may be able to take out full UK government student funding. This would mean being classed as an EU migrant worker.  However, it is complex and subject to many criteria and strict residency regulations.  Please seek advice through the University's student funding team or UKCISA before applying.  If you are assessed by SFE as an EU migrant worker or Swiss worker and are eligible for and received your student funding, you may then be able to apply to the Hardship Fund (a non-repayable grant from the University).  

You can also download our leaflet on EU funding which will give you more information on your eligibility.
