International students make an important contribution to our top universities worldwide and we want to keep this. This latest insurance to pay student loans and maintain eligibility of students throughout their studies, will provide stability that is important both for universities and for students.
Under the current financing conditions, European students are eligible to receive loans for tuition fees for undergraduate studies, if they have been resident in the European Economic Area in the last 3 years prior to study entry. European citizens who have lived in the last 5 years in the United Kingdom are also eligible for additional support provided but for loan offered master's programs.
