Solent University is a global university, through our outlook, people and enduring international partnerships. Our current and prospective EU students are our first priority in our approach to Brexit. We have welcomed students from over 119 countries globally and have worked extensively with partners and representatives across the EU and EEA region for many years, resulting in our ever growing, established European community.

For EU students joining Solent University in September 2019, there is no change to your tuition fee cost or entitlement throughout your entire period of study.

A message to parents, students and partners from Jo Nesbitt, Director of the International Office, Solent University

We would like to give you our confident assurance that any student attending Solent University will continue to receive excellent support from us throughout their study. It is critical to us that the uncertainty of Brexit will not impact, influence or otherwise affect any student’s study at Solent, including completion of exams and enabling them to successfully finish their studies. 

Our students are at the heart of everything we do at Solent University and we are completely committed to them, their well-being and success. Both our UK students and international students learn from each other, gain valuable global networks, and are prepared for an ever-increasing multicultural and international workplace. We will continue to ensure they are able to benefit from such relationships and experiences over the coming years.
