Brexit advice for students from the EU and have applied or are thinking of applying to Roehampton

At the University of Roehampton we are proud of our international community. It includes students from more than 140 countries, including from countries across the European Union. Our community has played a vital role in our success and is a key part of what makes Roehampton such a great pace to study.

We are aware of the uncertainty which Brexit is causing for all members of our community. On this webpage you will find answers to a range of questions you may have. We will continue to update these webpages as and when more information becomes available. 

If you have applied for or are thinking about applying to Roehampton to begin studying in 2019/20, your tuition fees will be charged the same rate as students from the UK, as detailed in your offer. This will be the same whether the UK leaves the EU, does not leave the EU, has a withdrawal agreement or leaves without a withdrawal agreement (a 'no-deal'). If you are thinking about applying to study at Roehampton from 2020/21 onwards we would encourage you to check this page regularly. As details of the arrangements for the UK's withdrawal from the EU become clearer we will update our guidance on this page.

EU, Swiss, Irish and EFTA nationals who begin their studies before the UK leaves the EU (in the event of a withdrawal agreement or not) will continue to benefit from their EHIC cover for the duration of their course regardless of when the course finishes. This means that these nationals will be covered for 'needs-arising treatment'. Furthermore, any individual who applies to the EU Settlement Scheme and is granted 'pre-settled' or 'settled' status will be eligible for free NHS healthcare. It is therefore essential you keep your EHIC up-to-date and accessible.

Once the UK leaves the EU this situation may alter. As we receive details we will provide further information on these webpages and to applicants.
