These rules are expected to be enshrined in law (by amendment to The Education (Student Support) Regulations 2011 (as amended) (the Regulations)) in early 2021. For EU Students, this means that, subject to certain exceptions, you will not eligible for home fee status and student finance from 1 August 2021. Please refer to the full eligibility rules for full details.
