How student finance works

What happens after Brexit?

EU students applying to degree programmes starting in 2019 and 2020, who meet the eligibility criteria under the current rules, will be eligible to pay the same fees as home fee status students. The UK Government has guaranteed that EU nationals starting their degree course in September 2019 and 2020 will continue to be classed as ‘Home’ students for all three years of their degree. NCH has extended this fee status guarantee to include EEA and Swiss nationals for 2019 entry. Furthermore, EU, EEA and Swiss nationals starting in September 2019 will not need a visa to complete their degree in the UK.

EU students attending university in England, who meet the criteria to receive loans and grants from the Student Loans Company will continue to do so for the duration of courses they are currently enrolled on. This has been confirmed by the Student Loans Company for England.

These guarantees will apply for the full duration of the course, even if the course finishes after the UK has left the EU.

The full Government press release on EU fees for 2020/21 can be found here.

You can apply for a bursary as soon as you receive your offer, and you are welcome to apply before you choose whether to accept your offer.

Students who are eligible for UK government maintenance loans do not need to apply separately for an NCH bursary. We will use the financial information you provide to Student Finance when applying for your maintenance loan to determine your eligibility for, and the value of, your bursary.  Please make sure that you consent to share the information you and your parent or guardian provide to Student Finance so that we are able to assess your eligibility.

In the event that you are not eligible to apply for a UK government maintenance loan, you may still be eligible to receive an NCH bursary. You can apply directly to the College using the form below.


Maintenance loans

Permanent residents of England, and EU nationals who have been resident in the UK for five years or more before their programme starts can also apply for a maintenance loan from SLC. The amount of loan you receive will vary according to your household income. You can use your loan to pay for accommodation and living costs such as transportation and food. There is lots of information and guidance on applying for your maintenance loan at the Student Finance Zone.
