EU Referendum Impact

Here at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David we wish to emphasise our proud track-record for welcoming staff and students from around the world and reassure you that we continue to welcome staff and students from the EU and internationally.

Following an announcement by the Welsh Government, we are pleased to confirm that EU students enrolling within the academic years of 2017/18 and 2018/19 will continue to pay Welsh domestic student fees for the duration of their studies.

EU students will also be able to access student loans from Student Finance Wales details of which can be found on the Student Finance Wales.

There will be no immediate change to the UK university sector’s involvement in Horizon 2020 and the Erasmus Programme. Both incoming and outgoing students on the scheme will continue with their exchanges as planned. UK universities are working closely with the government to ensure that universities receive the best possible outcome from the negotiations to leave the EU.

The referendum result has no immediate effect on those applying to or participating in Horizon 2020. UK participants can continue to apply to the programme in the usual way. The future of UK access to European science funding will be a matter for future discussions. The UK Government has stated that it is determined to ensure that the UK continues to play a leading role in European and international research.
