Support for EU/EEA students on vocational and academic courses

If you are 16-18 and a citizen of a country in the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland, you are not required to pay tuition fees. The only fees you may have to pay are for specialist resources and equipment, the cost of these varies from £25 to £300 depending upon the subject you are studying.

If you are 19+, you may be eligible for financial support.

Do you need support settling in the UK?

Recommended for students whose first language is not English and who are studying in the UK for the first time, we offer different levels of support available depending on individual needs. So if you are worried about making friends, finding accommodation, improving your English or help with your academic studies, the international team can help you!

  • Silver support package 
    English and academic support (5 hours per week during term-time).
  • Gold support package
    English and academic support (5 hours per week during term-time): access to accommodation services and International student social programme, welfare support specific to students new to the UK. 

The international team is based at Brighton MET’s central campus where English language courses take place. Limited international services are offered at other campuses.

EU nationals living and working in the UK are currently able to enrol on further education courses or take apprenticeships on the same basis as UK citizens. Students must have lived for three years as an ordinary residence in any one of the 28 EU states plus some further countries. Existing education entitlements extend to the EEA (ie the EU plus Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein). For information about how Brexit might affect EU status, please click here
