At the time of updating this website (Thursday 14th March 2019 at 21:00hrs GMT), this is what is generally known about the impact of Brexit on student mobility to and from the EU.
Erasmus+ Students and staff on Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corp programmes on the date of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU If the UK leaves without a deal, staff, students and trainees on Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corp (ESC) mobilities on 29 March 2019 should be able to complete their exchange and continue to receive the relevant funding or grants (subject to immigration policy in the resident country). This will apply to Scottish students studying at EU27 institutions and EU27 students studying at Scottish institutions. This is provided that the UK and EU reach an agreement on the eligibility of UK organisations to continue participation. It is recommended that Scottish institutions seek to make bilateral agreements with Erasmus+ partners which include a no-deal Brexit scenario. 

Students and staff wishing to access Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corp programmes after the UK’s withdrawal from the EU In a no-deal scenario it is the UK Government’s intention to discuss with the European Commission the terms by which the UK would be able to continue to participate in Erasmus+. Provided an agreement can be met, it is envisaged that those projects / groups that fall within the scope of the UK’s new status would be able to submit future bids, covered by the funding guarantee. If terms cannot be agreed the UK would no longer retain access to the programme, and projects from the UK would not be eligible to make future bids. It is recommended that Scottish institutions make contingency plans with Erasmus+ partners for students who are expected to take up exchange programmes after 29 March 2019. 


SAAS eligibility

Current Position (24 April 2019) on Brexit

Under EU reciprocal arrangements the Scottish government provides tuition fee (and in some limited cases living-cost) support for eligible EU students and their family members, coming to Scotland to study. Due to various EU treaties, students from the EEA, Switzerland and Turkey may also be entitled to student support in certain circumstances.

There has been no change so far to the right of EU nationals to reside in the UK. Scotland as part of the UK remains part of the EU, and EU nationals working and studying in Scotland continue to be able to exercise their rights under EU Freedom of Movement until Brexit.  Following the UK's decision to withdraw from the EU, on 24th March 2017 the Scottish Government confirmed that eligible students who start their course in academic year 2018-19 would be eligible for funding for the duration of their course.

Students starting in academic year 2019-2020

On 1st February 2018, the Scottish Government confirmed it would meet the cost of tuition fees for eligible EU students starting their course in 2019-20, for the duration of their course.  The commitment to provide tuition to EU students in academic year 2019-20 extends to all eligible EU nationals and associated groups, on eligible further education, higher education (including nursing) and postgraduate courses that currently attract tuition fee support from the Scottish Government.

Students starting in academic year 2020-2021

On 19th April 2019, the Scottish Government confirmed it would meet the cost of tuition fees for eligible EU students starting their course in 2020-21, for the duration of the course.  The commitment to provide tuition to EU students in academic year 2020-21 extends to all eligible EU nationals and associated groups, on eligible further education, higher education (including Nursing) and postgraduate courses that currently attract tuition fee support from the Scottish Government.

Students starting in academic session 2021-2022

We are not in a position to confirm the funding policy for EU nationals and associated groups, starting a course of study in academic year 2021-22, as we are awaiting the outcome of EU exit negotiations between the UK Government and the EU.  However, we are aware that students may start considering from now where they would like to study in 2021 and we will provide a further advice as soon as we are able to; so please check back here regularly.


Furthermore, with regard to research and Horizon2020 projects, this is what was generally known on 28/6/2019.
