It has been officially stated that EU students commencing their postgraduate courses after August 2021 will pay higher tuition fees and lose access to current funding schemes. However, I can't find confirmation if this truly applies to all EU students, even those that have been ordinarily resident in the UK prior and will have settled/pre-settled status. It seems a bit preposterous to me that I would be able to get a job, but not PhD funding if I want my career to be in research.

Edit:
The official announcement is here: https://www.ukcisa.org.uk/studentnew...and-in-2021-22

The interesting bit is this:
"It will not affect students starting courses in academic year 2020/21, nor those EU, other EEA and Swiss nationals benefiting from Citizens’ Rights under the EU Withdrawal Agreement, EEA EFTA Separation Agreement or Swiss Citizens’ Rights Agreement respectively."

In the EU Withdrawal Agreement I find the following:
"The Withdrawal Agreement protects the rights of more than three million EU citizens living in the UK and around one million UK nationals living in the EU. It ensures that they can continue contributing to their communities and living their lives broadly as they do now.

Those protected by the Withdrawal Agreement will be able to continue to live, work, study and access public services and benefits in the countries in which they currently reside."

So if I understand this correctly, if I successfully apply for settled status, none of this would apply to me and I will continue to claim home status after August 2021?
