To all EU students I share this statement from the SFC webside -

EU Nationals and Student Finance in England
Statement from Jo Johnson, Minister of State for Universities and Science
Monday, June 27, 2016

The following statement applies to EU nationals who are currently in receipt of student loans
from the Student Loans Company (SLC), and to EU nationals who intend to begin studying
from this autumn.

EU nationals or their family members, currently in higher education, and who
are assessed as eligible to receive loans and/or grants from the SLC, will continue to receive
these loans and grants until they finish their course.
This applies to all student finance from the SLC for students in England for which EU nationals are eligible.
This includes loans to cover tuition fees (for those resident in the EEA for three years), loans and grants for
maintenance (limited to those resident in the UK for at least three years), and some other grants and allowances.

The rules applying to EU nationals, or their family members, who have applied for a place at university
from this August to study a course which attracts student support are unchanged.
The SLC will assess these applications against existing eligibility criteria, and will provide loans and/or grants in the normal way.
EU nationals, or their family members, who are assessed as eligible to receive grants and/ or loans by the SLC will then be eligible for the duration of their study on that course.
These eligibility criteria set out that for students beginning study from this August,
EU nationals must have been resident in the UK for at least five years in order to apply for a maintenance loan.

Students should consult their university’s student finance office, or the GOV.UK website, for information
on what support they can receive.
