If I arrived in the UK before December 2020, will I be eligible for home tuition fees and student loans?

It has been confirmed that, if you are an EU citizen, entered the UK before 31 December 2020 and apply for pre-settled/settled status, you will have access to home fees and student loans even after August 2021 (provided that you meet the criteria). 

This is not the case for new EU students (without settled/pre-settled status). This might be different for Irish nationals intending to study in the UK.

For more information about this, please visit the dedicated Brexit section on Universities UK website or on the UK Council of International Student Affairs website.

See  this UK Government policy paper on student finance eligibility for the 2021-2022 academic year.
