EU Referendum and Brexit

Our commitment to internationalism remains unchanged

Our many EU staff and students are a valued part of our vibrant and diverse community and continue to play a vital role in the future of the University.

Following the EU Referendum outcome in June 2016, London South Bank University (LSBU) Vice-Chancellor Professor David Phoenix reassured international and EU students, as well as those applying to study at LSBU, that he remains committed to ensuring that the University continues to be a welcoming, diverse and vibrant international community.

Since the referendum vote in 2016, the UK Government has so far guaranteed EU students applying for courses at English universities the same benefits from the current funding support system and UK students' level of fees, throughout the duration of their course. This guarantee continues for students eligible for undergraduate, masters, postgraduate and advanced learner financial support in the academic year 2019 to 2020. Students starting after this date we are waiting for further information from the UK government.

Advice for students

Universities UK have published guidance for EU students who are currently studying in the UK, or plan to come to the UK to study in the future.

EU students planning to study with us in 2019/20 or 2020/21

The UK Government has guaranteed EU students who start their course at an English university starting in Autumn 2019 or Autumn 2020 will benefit from the current funding support system and UK students'  level of fees, throughout the duration of their course. Students will continue to remain eligible for undergraduate, masters, postgraduate and advanced learner financial support for the entire duration of their course throughout this period.

At this stage, there is no reason to assume any change to your immigration status. We will keep you up-to-date as we find out more information.

Erasmus+ students

There are no planned changes to the status of our students currently studying abroad under the Erasmus+ Programme or who are looking to come to LSBU.

EU-funded research projects

There is no change to the University’s participation in EU research, or to innovation programmes such as Horizon 2020.
