The Courtauld and Brexit
The Courtauld draws its student body and faculty from more than forty countries around the world. The new perspectives and different experiences international students bring are enormously important to our community, and we are committed to warmly welcoming students and staff from around the world and ensuring that members of The Courtauld community are supported whilst the details of Brexit are resolved.
The UK formally left the European Union on 31 January 2020. We are now in a transition period until 31 December 2020, while the UK and the EU negotiate additional arrangements. During this period, the UK will continue to follow EU rules, and virtually all UK-EU cooperation remains unchanged.
The Courtauld are monitoring the situation closely and are engaged in planning during the transition period.
Frequently Asked Questions:
I am a current EU/EEA/Swiss student. Will my tuition fees increase after Brexit? If you enrolled on your course in September 2019, or earlier, your tuition fees will remain consistent throughout the duration of your degree.
I am applying to study in September 2020. How will this affect me? EU students applying for a place at a university in the 2020-21 academic year will continue to be eligible for ‘home fee status’, which means they will be charged the same tuition fees as UK students for the duration of their studies.
I am applying to study in September 2021 or beyond. How will this affect me? The government has confirmed that EU students starting their studies in 20201 will no longer be eligible for home fee status or student loans in England. This changes does not affect students who start their course in 2020/21 academic year.
How do I apply to the EU Settlement Scheme? The EU Settlement Scheme is open to all EU, EEA and Swiss nationals. Details about the application process can be found on the government website.
I am a non-EU/EEA/Swiss student. How will this affect me? We do not envisage any changes for non-EU/EEA/Swiss students applying to study in the UK. If you require support applying for a visa, our Admissions team are able to advise you.
