British students studying or applying to study at ULIP:

 

Will I still be able to study at ULIP?

Yes – absolutely! British students have been studying at ULIP since long before Britain’s entry into the EU and will continue to do so long after the UK exits the bloc.

What rate of tuition fee will I be required to pay?

All students who are assessed as having Home (UK) status will continue to be charged the Home rate of tuition fees. This currently stands at £9250 for the 2018-19 academic year and will remain the same in 2019-20. 

Will I still be eligible for UK Student Finance?

Yes – eligible home students studying at ULIP will continue to be eligible for Student Finance, receiving loans and / or grants from the Student Loans Company to pay their tuition fees and support their living costs.

I am applying to study at ULIP – can I defer my entry to 2020-21?

Yes – ULIP is always happy to defer a place to the following year for students with worthwhile plans and projects for a gap year. 

Will I need a visa to study in France?

UK nationals do not currently need a visa to live, study, or work in France but immigration regulation regarding UK nationals may change when the UK exits the EU. ULIP will provide all necessary support for students who need to apply for a visa.

Will I be eligible for access to healthcare and other benefits in France?

Yes. Non-EU students are already eligible for a range of benefits in France, including basic health cover and housing benefit. Once the UK has left the EU, students who are no longer eligible for a European Health Insurance Card will be able to access basic health cover in France by registering for sécurité sociale étudiante.

 

EU Students studying or applying to study at ULIP:

Will I still be able to study at ULIP?

Yes – absolutely! ULIP has a long history of welcoming students from across the globe and will remain open all students with a thirst for knowledge, regardless of their nationality. 

What rate of tuition fees will I be required to pay?

The UK government has confirmed that, provided they meet European residency requirements, all EU students starting courses at British universities in the 2018-19 and 2019-20 academic years will continue to pay the Home (UK & EU) rate of tuition fees (i.e. £9250) for the duration of their course.

No guarantee has been given as to the rate of tuition fees that will be charged to EU students beginning courses in subsequent academic years. 

As an EU student, will I still be eligible for UK Student finance?

Yes, subject to the same UK or European Residency requirements as previously. All EU students starting their course in the 2018-19 and 2019-20 academic years will continue to be eligible for Student Finance, receiving loans and / or grants from the Student Loans Company to pay their tuition fees (and, under certain conditions, to support their living costs). This financial support will remain available for the duration of your course. 

I am a EU student applying to study at ULIP  – can I defer my place to 2020 entry?

While ULIP is very happy to accept deferrals from students with positive plans for a year out, given that the UK government has offered no guarantee as to which rate of tuition fees and what level of support EU students will receive from 2020 onwards, we would recommend that you consider your options very carefully before making the decision to defer your entry. 

Will I need a visa to study in France?

No. EU nationals do not currently need a visa to live, study, or work in France. These arrangements will be unaffected by the UK’s exit from the EU. 

Will I be eligible for access to healthcare and other benefits in France?

Yes. EU residents are currently eligible for a range of benefits in France, including basic health cover and housing benefit. These arrangements will be unaffected by the UK’s exit from the EU.
