    Hi! I'm an EU student (from Italy) and I'm thinking about studying journalism in the UK next year (september 2017).

    I wanted to know if I'm still eligible for a loan, to cover the tuition fees that I have to pay. I don't live in the UK so I don't think I could get a maintenance loan (you can get that after 5 years in the UK, right?)

    You would find that out for sure early next year but the answer is likely to be yes as we will still be in the EU/article 50 would not have been triggered yet.

    As far as I know, SFE is not releasing tuition fees loans to EU students without UK residency (3 years).
    At least that's the evidence I was asked to provide to start my last year at uni.
    I'm Italian too and I've been here for nearly a decade, so no problems there..... but I wasn't asked this when I started uni in 2013.
    So I wonder if all these new rules are being enforced now because of Brexit.

    You are right as in loan for fees (3 years in EEA) and the (5 year UK residence) requirement for maintenance.


    You will be unaffected for 2017.
    The UK is still in the EU and will not start negotiations till 2017 and they most likely will take 2 years. As long as you have started before we leave they will not change things for you.
