We are aware that the current situation with the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union may be a cause for concern for EU students.  However, this should not deter you from studying in the UK.  Each year thousands of students from outside of the EU come to the UK to study and it remains one of the leading destinations for international students, second only to the USA.  UK universities are among the best in the world, and consistently perform well in world rankings.  Regardless of the UK’s decision to leave the EU, this position will remain unchanged and the ESO will continue to welcome students from all over the world.

The UK Government has recently confirmed that the tuition fee status for EU students will remain unchanged for those enrolling for 2020/21 entry and that funding will continue to be available for the full duration of the course. The UK’s Universities Minister goes on to state:

“We value the important contribution that international students, including those from the EU, make to our universities and it is a testament to our world-leading higher education system that so many students from abroad choose to come and study here. It is important that we remember that while we have chosen to leave the EU, we are not leaving Europe, and our universities thrive on the diversity of being global institutions.”

Information about the ESO’s current tuition fees and the funding options for EU students can be found on the Fees & Funding section of this website.

The enrollment process for EU and UK citizens is currently aligned – visit our Applicant Journey and Entry Requirements pages to find out more.  We have also produced an EU Student Guide which includes useful information about studying in the UK.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact our Admissions team on +44 (0)1622 671558 or email – we’re here to help.
