EU/EEA students applying for a full-time undergraduate course at University Centre Peterborough in the 2021/22 academic year may still be entitled to tuition fee and maintenance loans after the UK’s exit from the EU.
EU students must provide evidence to UCP of their Settled Status or Pre-settled Status when applying for a course. This will be a condition of any offer made by UCP.
Eligible EU students will have continued access to student finance for the duration of their course.
- EU students are entitled to a Tuition Fee Loan
- EU students are entitled to a Maintenance Loan depending on nationality, residency status and address history (been in the UK for at least 3 years before the course starts)
EU students are advised to check eligibility for student finances before applying for a course.
For the latest information
We advise EU/EEA students check www.gov.uk/guidance/studying-in-the-uk-guidance-for-eu-students for latest information or you can speak to our Student Support team for guidance or book a 1:1 Virtual Advice Session where we can offer help and advice.
In addition further guidance can be found on the Student Finance website www.gov.uk/student-finance.
Our first recommendation is that students ensure they are eligible to study Higher Education in the UK and are eligible for Students Loan Company support, which will be dependent on their settled status. This information can be found here: View and prove your immigration status - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
We advise EU students regularly check www.gov.uk for latest information. In addition, further guidance can be found on the Student Finance website www.gov.uk/student-finance. If you require further details we would like you to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
