EU-Referendum: Informationen für Studierende

Das Vereinigte Königreich hat einige der besten Universitäten und Forscher/innen der Welt. Internationale Studierende, Wissenschaftler und Forscher spielen für diesen Erfolg eine wichtige Rolle. Sollten Sie sich für einen Studienplatz im Vereinigten Königreich beworben haben und über den Ausgang des EU-Referendums im Vereinigten Königreich besorgt sein, haben wir nachstehend einige Informationen und Quellen für Sie zusammentragen, bei denen Sie weitere Informationen zu diesem Thema finden: 

Universities UK(externer Link in englischer Sprache) hat ebenfalls bestätigt, dass sich der Aufenthaltsstatus der momentan im Vereinigten Königreich befindlichen Erasmus-Studierenden aus anderen EU-Ländern nicht geändert hat und dass sie weiterhin Erasmus-Förderung erhalten. Dies gilt mindestens so lange wie das Vereinigte Königreich noch EU-Mitgliedsstaat ist und könnte auch darüberhinaus verlängert werden. Studierende aus EU-Staaten mit Studienbeginn 2016/17 und 2017/18 haben keinen Grund zur Annahme, dass sich ihr Aufenthaltsstatus oder Zugang zu Studienkrediten ändert. 

Studierende aus EU-Ländern mit Studienstart zum Wintersemester 2017/18 an einer Universität in England genießen vollen Zugang zu finanziellen Unterstützungsprogrammen

Die britische Regierung hat am 11. Oktober 2016 angekündigt, dass Studierende aus EU-Ländern, die sich um einen Studienplatz in England zum Studienjahr 2017/18 bewerben, haben weiterhin vollen Zugang zu Studienkrediten und -zuschüssen. Dies ist für die Dauer ihres Studienprogramms gesichert. 

Diese Entscheidung bedeutet, dass Studierende, die sich zum akademischen Jahr 2017/18 bewerben, nicht nur weiterhin Zugang zu diesen Fördermöglichkeiten haben, sondern diese auch für die Dauer ihres Kurses genießen. Dies ist auch dann der Fall, sollte das Vereinigte Königreich die EU während dieser Zeit verlassen.

FAQ (in englischer sprache)

 

After the referendum result – should/can I still apply to study in the UK?

The referendum result has no immediate implications for international students wanting to study in the UK, including those already studying in the UK. There are no immediate changes to their immigration status, fee status and access to tuition fee loans. The UK has always been and continues to welcome high quality international students. 

What has the UK Government said?

There will be no immediate changes following the EU Referendum, including in the circumstances of British citizens living in the EU, and European citizens living here. This includes those studying or working at UK universities. For students, visitors, businesses and entrepreneurs who are already in the UK or who wish to come here, there will be no immediate change to our visa policies.

We can currently offer no assurances that the status of international students will not change once the UK leaves the EU however.

What about the announcement from the UK Home Secretary about new restrictions on overseas students?

The announcement mentioned new restrictions on overseas students, including two-tier visa rules affecting some universities and courses. However, before these are in place, a consultation will be take place, including with UK Universities as well as their umbrella bodies.

What about student loans and access to them?

The UK’s Students Loan Company (SLC) issued a statement to reassure EU nationals currently attending English universities who are in receipt of student loans from the SLC, or who intend to begin studying from this autumn, will continue to receive these loans and grants until they finish their course.

 

The government has announced on 11 October 2016 that EU students applying for a place at an English university or further education institution in the 2017 to 2018 academic year will continue to be eligible for student loans and grants - and will be for the duration of their course.

 

The decision will mean that students applying to study from 2017 to 2018 will not only be eligible for the same funding and support as they are now, but that their eligibility will continue throughout their course, even if the UK exits the European Union during that period.

We can currently offer no assurances that fees may or may not change once the UK leaves the EU however.

Why should I still apply for study in the UK?

The UK has some of the best universities and researchers in the world, and international students, academics and researchers play a significant part in that success. If you've applied to study in the UK and are concerned about what the referendum results mean for you, here are some things you can do to find out more information:

Universities UK has also stated that immigration status of EU students studying in the UK under the Erasmus programme has not changed, and they continue to be eligible for their Erasmus grant until at least as long as the UK remains a member of the EU and could be extended beyond this. Moreover EU students with a place to start in academic year 2016/17 and 2017/18  have no reason to assume any change to your  immigration status or access to student loan book.

What’s your opinion on the referendum result?

We respect the decision of the UK electorate, are working towards a positive outcome to the negotiations that follow the result. We recognise this process is a two-sided negotiation and are seeking a “win-win” result that recognises what both sides have to lose and/or gain.

How many students are currently studying in the UK?

There are currently over 500,000 international students from over 80 countries studying in the UK. We recognise that these students make a significant contribution to the diversity and intellectual vitality of UK education, making a critical contribution to UK research capacity and standing in the globalised knowledge economy.
