Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Greek and other EU na­tion­als who re­ceive stu­dent loans from Bri­tain’s Stu­dent Loans Com­pany (SLC) will con­tinue to do so un­til they fin­ish their course, the UK’s stu­dent loan body has an­nounced. The same ap­plies to EU stu­dents who are set to be­gin study­ing in the fall, the SLC added. The an­nounce­ment was made fol­low­ing Bri­tain’s re­cent de­ci­sion to exit the EU. Tu­ition fees for un­der­grad­u­ate stud­ies cur­rently stand at 9,000 pounds ster­ling for uni­ver­si­ties in Eng­land, 3,810 pounds for uni­ver­si­ties in Wales and 3,805 pounds for uni­ver­si­ties in North­ern Ire­land. Tu­ition is free in Scot­land. The SLC also an­nounced that EU na­tion­als were now el­i­gi­ble to re­ceive up to 10,000 pounds in loans for post-grad­u­ate stud­ies in the UK. Mean­while, the Hel­lenic Col­leges As­so­ci­a­tion an­nounced that agree­ments be­tween Greek col­leges and Bri­tish uni­ver­si­ties re­mained un­changed, both in terms of course con­tent and tu­ition fees.
