UK government plans higher tuition fees for EU citizens

UK government plans higher tuition fees for EU citizens
EU nationals wishing to begin their studies in the UK in 2020-21 face higher tuition fees, a reversal of the current practice which sees EU students who study at British universities pay the same tuition fees as UK students. The UK government believes that state subsidies provided for EU nationals would no longer be justified after Brexit as they will not be likely to stay and contribute to the economy. International students in the UK pay between £10,000 to £38,000 per year to study. Irish students would be exempt from this measure. In addition to more expensive fees, EU students will no longer be entitled to take out loans under favourable conditions.
