SAE welcomes applicants from the EU/EEA. On this page you will find information about applying to study in the UK

The UK is no longer a member of the European Union. If you are from the EU, EEA-EFTA states, or Switzerland, and you are thinking of coming to study in the UK, there are a few practical things you need to know.

NB - Irish nationals are considered UK domestic applicants.

How much are tuition fees for EU/EEA students?

Following the UK Government's confirmation that EU students will no longer be eligible for home fee status benefits, we've made the decision to keep EU tuition fees the same as UK tuition fees for 2021 entry and throughout the duration of your course. These are £9,000 per year for SAE Liverpool and London and £7,500 per year for SAE Glasgow.

Will I need a visa?

If you were not already resident in the UK before 1st January 2021, you will require a visa to study in the UK. For applicants already resident in the UK before 1st January 2021 you will not require a visa to study in the UK as long as you register for the EU Settlement Scheme by 20 June 2021.

How do I apply for a visa?

You can only apply for a visa once you have an offer to study with SAE and a Certificate of Acceptance for Studies. Applications are made via the UK Government Student Route. Our friendly admissions and recruitment team will guide you through the process. The first step is to apply online for your course at SAE UK.

Is student finance available?

Student finance is still available via the Students Loans Company for residents of EU, EEA-EFTA states or Switzerland who start full-time degree courses in England before 31st August 2021, for the duration of their course. For courses starting after 31st August, student finance will not be available for residents of the EU, EEA-EFTA states, or Switzerland.
