European Nationals and International Students
Eligible EU students who come to Scotland to study are not required to pay tuition fees whilst studying in Scotland. They are not, however, eligible to apply for maintenance support unless they have been a resident in Scotland for more than three years (for the academic year 2014/2015 the residency cut of date is 1st August 2011).In the rare instance that a Non-UK EU student is in receipt of a UK means tested loan, they may be eligible for support through the discretionary, childcare and emergency aid funds.
There is no public funds/government financial support available to International students studying in the UK, as It is expected that International students will have the full funding and financial support required for their course in place before arriving in the UK.
In addition, University Discretionary funds, Childcare fund or Emergency Aid funds are not available to International or EU students.
EU & International Hardship Fund
New for 2014/2015!!
We know sometimes life is not simple and students from International and EU countries suffer from unexpected financial hardship whilst at University. Eligible students from The University of Strathclyde can now apply for the EU & International Student Hardship Fund if they find themselves in a financial crisis.
