What does Brexit mean for current and prospective students?

Though much is still uncertain about the UK’s exit from the European Union, we’ve pulled together some FAQs which we hope will help EU residents thinking of studying at UCFB make an informed choice on their decision to study in the UK. The information below will also be useful for existing EU students studying at UCFB.

This page is being updated all of the time, so please check back regularly if you’re question hasn’t been answered. Alternatively, please feel free to contact international@ucfb.com with your inquiry.

This information should also be useful for existing EU students studying at UCFB.

There will be no change to UCFB’s scholarship policy or your ability to apply for one in the 2019 and 2020 period.

Temporary residence permit status and settled status give you access to public services including the National Health Service (NHS).
