Your student funding

Learn more about your student funding

If you are planning to study at a UK university this autumn, and you are an EU national, please read this funding statement from the Student Loans Company.

The majority of EU students are not eligible for help with living costs. However, eligible students from the EU can have a non-means tested loan to cover the cost of their tuition fees. You could also secure additional funding through scholarships, bursaries or support from Liverpool John Moores University. Explore the links below to find out more about your funding package.

Tuition fees for EU students

Tuition fee loan, living costs and repayment information 

This page provides an overview of the government funding available to full-time EU undergraduates starting a course in 2017/18. As well as government funding, you could also receive additional funding from a scholarship.

Your tuition fee loan

Full-time and part-time EU undergraduates may be entitled to a tuition fee loan, which will cover the cost of your course. 

You need to apply for your tuition fee loan by the end of May. You can still apply after this date, but if you do apply later you may not receive your money for the start of term. In order to be eligible, you must apply no later than nine months after the start of your course. 

Tuition fee loan deadline: End of May.

Am I entitled to additional support?

The majority of EU students are not eligible for UK government funding for living costs.  

If you are moving to the UK to study, make sure you have sufficient money to pay for your living costs before you start your course.  

If you have been living in the UK for five or more years before the start of your course, or you have been working in the UK, you may be entitled to additional support.  

Repayments

You do not have to start repaying your loans until you are earning more than £21,000 per year, unless you leave your course early. In this instance your eligibility will be recalculated to ensure you have only had a loan for the number of weeks you have been attending.  

Once you are earning more than £21,000 each year, you will pay back 9% of anything above the £21,000 threshold. Different repayment thresholds apply if you move to another EU country though.  

This chart gives you an idea about the amount you will repay based on the amount you earn if you work in the UK after studying.
