UK Says Greek Students Will Pay the Same as English Undergraduates After Brexit

Thousands of Greek students thinking of studying in the U.K. next year will still be charged the same as English students, even after Brexit.

British Education Secretary Damian Hinds was quoted as saying on Monday that undergraduates from EU states would still be charged the same as domestic students for the academic year starting September 2019.

The U.K. is to leave the EU in March next year.

Hinds also confirmed the fee will be frozen at £9,250 (€10,462) for a further year in 2019-2020, a significantly lower level than that for non-EU students. The vast majority of students take out loans to cover these tuition fees plus living expenses.

About 80,000 students from the EU join more than 1.6 million first-year undergraduates in starting university courses in the U.K. every year.
