Oxford and the EU: student Q&As

The implications of the UK plans to leave European Union membership  

Implications of the UK leaving the European Union

The UK referendum of June 2016 resulted in a vote in favour of leaving the European Union (EU). Currently, UK membership enables staff from across the EU to come to Oxford to teach and research, and assists Oxford's staff and students to participate in European research programmes. EU membership has enabled Oxford's participation in pan-European collaborations, and guaranteed the opportunity to access EU research funding (of some £78m in 2017/18).

An extension to the UK’s membership has set the current departure date from the EU at 31 January 2020. Meanwhile, the UK government and the EU have negotiated a withdrawal agreement. This must be approved by parliament following the general election to come into effect.

If the withdrawal agreement is approved by MPs and in place by the departure date of 31 January then a transition period is expected to follow until December 2020. If the agreement is not in place by that date then the UK could face leaving under the ‘no deal’ scenario, if there is no a further extension to its membership. The University is making preparations for this possibility.

Whatever the outcome, the University of Oxford is, and intends to remain, a thriving, cosmopolitan community of scholars and students united in our commitment to education and research. The departure from the EU will not change this; our staff and students from all across the world are as warmly welcome as ever.

The information below is correct at the time of writing on the basis of current UK government and EU policy. It will be updated as new advice is issued.

For all current students

I plan to travel abroad around the scheduled departure date. Do I need to do anything?

Until there is clarity on the nature of UK’s withdrawal from the EU, it is not possible to provide specific advice about travel arrangements. For the time being, you should continue to arrange your travel as you would have previously, and check this page on the UK Government website for updates as close to the date of travel as possible.  Further information is also available on the UKCISA website.

What is the current advice for travel after the UK's departure if we get an agreement?

If a deal with the UK and EU Government is reached before this date, there will be no changes to current visa requirements or entitlements until the end date of the transition period, which is likely to be December 31, 2020.

What is the current advice for travel after the UK's departure if there is no deal?

If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, you should keep up-to-date with information on the Government website and news and consider that there might be some delays at entry points into the UK and/or EU.

The Government’s current passport advice is that under no deal UK nationals will need a minimum of six months remaining on their existing passport prior to travelling to Europe. If, for example, you have a ten-year passport which will be older than 9 years and 6 months on the date you plan to travel, it will need to be renewed in advance. A passport checking service has been provided on the gov.uk website. The gov.uk website also provides specific guidance for UK passport holders wishing to travel after the exit date, in the event of a no deal, as new rules will apply depending on the country that you are visiting. There is also additional guidance to cover travel to the EU by land, sea or rail.

The Government has now also outlined its proposals for new EU students arriving in the UK after the exit date to begin a new course of study.

Further information is also available on the UKCISA website for students.

I am planning to drive in the EU after the UK's departure. What should I do?

UK students planning to drive in the EU after Brexit will need to follow additional requirements. In the event of no deal, it is likely that an international driving permit will be required to drive a car whilst visiting an EU country. Guidance on the gov.uk website is changing regularly, but does provide an email alert service for those needing to drive in the EU immediately after the exit date.

What will happen to reciprocal EU/EEA healthcare arrangements after the exit date?

If a deal with the UK and EU Government is reached before this date, there will be no changes to the rights and status of EU citizens living in the UK until June 30, 2021. Even if the UK leaves without a deal, there will be no changes until December 31, 2020. For UK citizens travelling to the EU, the status of the European Health Insurance Card in the event of no deal remains uncertain. For more information see the EHIC Government webpages.

I am a postgraduate working with a research team funded by an ongoing Horizon 2020 grant. What will happen to this funding?

Regardless of the form that Brexit takes your project will continue. If we leave with a withdrawal agreement, you will see no change. If there is no deal, the Government’s underwrite will apply. The project, and your participation, will therefore continue for the lifetime of the project. There may need to be an amendment to the grant agreement to allow for the change of status of UK participants from EU Member State participants to third country participants, who are not funded by the EC.

Will I be able to participate in the Erasmus+ programme?

Oxford remains wholly committed to the Erasmus+ programme and to ensuring student exchanges with European partner universities continue.  The University is strongly advocating for continued participation in the Erasmus+ programme, including access to funding contributions for undergraduates’ compulsory years abroad.

Year abroad arrangements will continue to be in place. In the event that funding is not made available through the European Commission or the UK government for Erasmus+ activity, the University has committed to funding exchange activity required as a compulsory part of an undergraduate degree programme on the same basis.

If you are due to have a year abroad during your studies, you should continue to plan as you have previously, and the University will ensure you are  informed of any developments about participation in the Erasmus+ programme as these are announced on the National Agency’s webpage. Further information and updates relating to the Erasmus+ programme at Oxford are available at ox.ac.uk/erasmus.

Where can I find more information on the Government’s position?

The UK Government has published a series of documents setting out its preparations for a "no deal" scenario. The overview document outlines the general approach and introduces a series of technical notices specific to particular topics. 

For current EU students

Will my immigration status change?

At present, the UK remains in the EU and will continue to do so until an exit date is agreed. This means that European Economic Area (EEA) and Swiss nationals continue to have the same rights and status, and are subject to the same residence requirements under EU law as was the case before the referendum. 

If a deal with the UK and EU Government is reached, there will be no changes to current visa requirements or entitlements until the end date of the transition period likely to be December 31, 2020. You will also be able to apply under the EU settlement scheme. See the student visa webpages for further information. 

If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, the Government has outlined the new arrangements for students arriving in the UK after this date to start their studies.

This page will be updated as more information becomes available during the negotiation phase.

A short presentation and Q&A about the EU Settlement scheme will be held at the Exam Schools on the following dates. These sessions are only open to Oxford students. Further sessions will also be available later in the term and next year.

  • Thursday 28 November 2019 1.00pm - 2.00pm

See the Student Immigration webpage for further details and how to book.

What course fees will I be charged? 

Current students, including those who started their courses in the 2019/20 academic year, will be charged the home rate for course fees for all years of their course, whether a deal for leaving the EU is in place or not. This will only increase in accordance with the information on changes to fees and charges set out in the applicable version of the University’s terms and conditions (see Your contract with the University page).

You can find fee information via our Fees, Funding and Scholarships search.

Will my fee status change?

The UK government has confirmed that EU students commencing their studies in 2019/20 or earlier will continue to have ‘Home’ fee status and pay fees at the home rate for the duration of their course.

I am on either a six year, or accelerated graduate-entry medical course. How will my fee status be affected?

Fee statuses are not reassessed during these courses, except in the very specific circumstances outlined on the Fee Status page. This means you will be charged the home rate for course fees for all years of your medical programme (leading to the degrees of BM BCh) at Oxford if you started in 2019/20 or earlier.

For students on the six-year course:

-         Under current government regulations, if you transfer to another medical school for your clinical study, we expect you will continue to be charged fees at the home rate

-         If you are registered on a different Oxford programme between the pre-clinical and clinical sections of your course, your fee status for the intercalated course will be assessed based on the situation, and the government regulations, at the time. When you return for the clinical stage of the medical course, you will resume with home fee rates

For more information about fees, see the Changes to Fees and Charges pages of the Fees and Funding website and consult the applicable version of the University’s terms and conditions (see Your contract with the University pages).

Will my University funding be affected?

If you are in receipt of University funding, the University is committed to the provision of this support.

Will I be able to apply for student loan support?

The UK government has confirmed that eligible undergraduate and postgraduate EU students who are commencing or continuing on an eligible course in the 2019/20 academic year, will be able to apply for student loan support for the duration of their course, even if the course concludes after the UK’s exit from the EU.

Will my UKRI research councils fees-only funding be affected?

The UK government has confirmed that existing postgraduate training support from UKRI research councils will remain available to EU students who are commencing or continuing their studies in 2019/20 for the duration of their course. 

Where can I find information and advice on studying in the UK and on the implications of UK plans to leave European Union membership?

For EU students starting in the academic year 2020/21:

What course fees will I be charged in the academic year 2020/21?

Following an announcement by the Universities Minister on 28 May 2019, EU students commencing their studies in 2020/21 academic year will be charged fees at the home rate for the duration of their course, whether a deal for leaving the EU is in place or not.

You can find fee information via our Fees, Funding and Scholarships Search for undergraduate and graduate students. EU students who begin their studies at the University in 2020/21 will be charged course fees at the home rate for all years of their course.

For new entrants in 2020/21 the fees will be outlined in your Course Information Sheet and offer letter (if applicable), and governed by the applicable version of the University’s terms and conditions. Information on changes to fees and charges in subsequent years for students who start in 2020/21 are set out on the Changes to Fees and Charges page for undergraduate or graduate study and are also available in the applicable version of the University’s terms and conditions (see Your contract with the University page).
