Brexit FAQs

Following the result of the EU Referendum on 24 June 2016, and the triggering of Article 50 on 29 March 2017, we understand that many King's students hoping to study abroad in Europe, and many European students hoping to study abroad at King's, will have questions relating to their mobility. Please see below for a list of FAQs - if you are still unsure about anything please feel free to contact the Study Abroad Office. Students currently at King's can also see the College's Brexit information section on the intranet.  

For King's students studying abroad in Europe:

 

Q: I am supposed to be studying in Europe in 2017/18. Can I still go?

A: Yes! We would like to reassure you that we remain fully committed to supporting your Erasmus+ Study Abroad experience, and the UK National Agency for the Erasmus+ programme has confirmed Erasmus+ mobilty and funding until at least the 2018/19 academic year. There are no immediate changes to our participation in Erasmus+, the funding opportunities this offers or the immigration status of the students participating in this scheme. We recommend you continue to make plans to make the most of these educational opportunities and the Study Abroad office will continue to support you.

 

Q: Will I still be an Erasmus+ student?

A: Yes! We would like to reassure you that we remain fully committed to supporting your Erasmus+ Study Abroad experience. You will still be an Erasmus+ student. There are no immediate changes to our participation in Erasmus+, the funding opportunities this offers or the immigration status of the students participating in this scheme.

Q: Will I still get funding?

A: Yes! Erasmus+ funding will still be available to students up to and including 2018/19, subject to the usual conditions. You may also be eligible for a Broadening Horizons Award

 

Q: Will I still be able to access an Erasmus mobility grant after 2017, given the triggering of Article 50 in March 2017?

A: There are no immediate changes to our participation in Erasmus+ including to the funding opportunities this offers. You will still be able to acces Erasmus+ funding up to and including the 2018/19 academic year. In the event that the UK is no longer part of Erasmus+ after 2019, UK university students studying abroad in Europe would not have access to this grant, though King’s will pro-actively support national efforts to establish suitable alternative opportunities.

 

Q: I am in my first year of a four year degree and won’t be able to study abroad until 2019/20. Will I still be able to go to Europe?

A: Yes! Even without the Erasmus+ programme, King’s is still committed to working with our European partners on exchanges and other types of collaboration. Every year we send hundreds of students to exchange partners outside of the EU and outside of the Erasmus+ programme. It's possible we may still have access to the Erasmus+ programme and funding after 2019, and we will continue to update this page as we know more.

 

Q: Will I be able to participate in an Erasmus+ Traineeship scheme as normal over the next couple of years?

A: Yes! We would like to reassure you that we remain fully committed to supporting your Erasmus+ Traineeship experience, and the UK National Agency for the Erasmus+ programme has confirmed Erasmus+ mobilty and funding until at least the 2018/19 academic year. There are no immediate changes to our participation in Erasmus+, the funding opportunities this offers or the immigration status of the students participating in this scheme. We recommend you continue to make plans to make the most of these educational opportunities and the Study Abroad office will continue to support you.

 

Q: As an EU student wishing to study abroad, what is going to be the fee reduction for the time I’m away?

A: Until we actually leave the EU (March 2019), this will be the same as a UK-domiciled student – please see here for details of the current fee structure.

 

Q: In 2016 I took advantage of the option for EU/International students to pay for three years of tuition in advance, and have decided to study abroad. Will I still get a reduction for the time spent abroad?

A: Yes! Please see here for full details of the Exceptional Measures for 2016 - Payment in Advance of Tution FeesWhere students study abroad for a semester or year, the fees for the year in question will be taken from the cash advance. This may result in the student being in credit to King's due to fee reductions deriving from study abroad. Where this is a mandatory part of the course students can choose to add the year out fee to the total payment in advance and the fee will be capped at 2016 fee levels.

 

 

For European students studying abroad at King's:

 

Q: I am an EU student coming to King’s on exchange in the 2017/18 academic year. Will I now have to pay tuition fees to King’s?
