    UK Leaving the European Union – Frequently Asked Questions

    • FAQ's

      • I’m from the EU. Will I now need a visa to visit, study or work in the UK?

        The immigration status of EU citizens is unlikely to change in immediate future, so your ability to visit, study or work in the UK will remain the same as it currently is.

        The process of the UK leaving the EU is managed under Article 50 of the EU’s Lisbon Treaty. The treaty foresees a period of approximately 2 years, or possibly longer, for a country to negotiate its exit from the Union. Any changes to your visiting, work or study rights will not likely take effect until after the process is concluded. The UK has not formally started this process yet.

      • I’m from the EU and currently studying at Middlesex. Will I now have to pay higher tuition fees?

        No. EU students who are currently studying at Middlesex will see no change in their fee status for the duration of their course. Any fee change during your course will be as a result of a planned change by the University and not as a result of the referendum.

      • I’m from the EU and am planning to start studying at Middlesex this year. Will I have to pay international fees now or in the future?

        No. Middlesex has announced that students who enrol with us in either September 2016 or January 2017 will pay EU fees for the entire duration of their course. No decision has yet been made on fees for students who enrol from September 2017 onwards.

      • I’m from the EU and planning to start studying in September 2017 or January 2018. Can I still get a loan to fund my studies? Will I get it in years 2 and 3?

        Yes. Student Finance England has announced that EU nationals who are applying to study a course which starts in the 2017/18 Academic Year and which attracts student support, are unchanged. Applications will be assessed against existing eligibility criteria, and loans and / or grants will be provided in the usual way. Read the full text of their statement.

      • I’m from the EU. Can I defer my offer to next year?

        Yes you can defer your offer. However no decision has yet been made on fees or student loans for EU students starting from September 2017 onwards.

      • I’m an EU student studying at one of the overseas Middlesex University campuses. Will I be able to transfer to Middlesex University London campus in 2017 and will I be able to get funding?

        Yes. For the moment nothing has changed with regards to your ability to transfer to the Middlesex campus (if your course allows this). Also, as above, there will be no change in fee status or any restrictions on your ability to get funding from Student Finance England in 2017.

      • I am an EU student from a partner institute. Are the fees going to change at my home university?

        As you are currently enrolled with us there should be no change in fee status at your home university caused by the referendum. However you should double check with your home University to be sure of any fee increase they might have planned independent of the referendum result.

      • I’m from the EU. Will there be any change in the application process?

        No. There will be no changes in the application process as a result of the referendum.

      • Will there be a change in the entry requirements of the courses?

        No. The decision to leave the EU does not affect our course entry requirements.

      • Does the decision to leave the EU change the value of my UK degree?

        No. Degrees are accredited by the University and the status of the University remains unchanged by the referendum decision. The British education system is highly respected internationally and there is no reason to expect this to change.

      • I’m from the UK and studying in the EU under the ERASMUS programme. Will anything change?

        The immigration status of UK students currently studying under the Erasmus programme has not changed, and you continue to be eligible for your Erasmus grant until at least as long as the UK remains a member of the EU, and possibly beyond this.

      • I’m from the EU. Will I still be able to open a bank account, register for a doctor or use the other NHS services?

        There is unlikely to be any immediate change in your ability to access any of these services.

      • Am I still welcome to study in the London?

        Of course! Diversity is part of our identity as a city and as a university. Overseas students make up a vital part of the Middlesex community with over 140 nationalities studying at our campus in London. London itself is one of the most progressive and diverse cities in the world with a population over 8 million people made up of hundreds of nationalities. You should note that the referendum result was extremely close with many areas, including notably London, voting heavily to remain.
