Leiden University Students studying in the UK

Are you a Leiden University student (thinking of) studying in the UK? Find out more about the impact of Brexit for current and prospective EU students of Leiden University studying abroad in the UK.

Impact of Brexit for EU students in the UK

For EU citizens who were already living or studying in the UK on Brexit day, the UK will continue to run the EU Settlement Scheme until 30 June 2021. This means you should be able to carry on your life as usual, continuing to work, study, and access benefits and services in the UK, much as you do now.  

Check your tuition fees

Check with your British university if tuition fees for the next academic year will be affected by Brexit. 

Erasmus+ programme

The UK has decided to cease its participation in the Erasmus+ programme. Nevertheless, Leiden University remains committed to collaboration with its partners in the UK. Students can still apply for an Erasmus+ scholarship for studies or traineeships for the academic year 2021-2022. After that, Leiden University will continue to support student exchange with British universities through the LUSTRA+ scholarship. Please note that the LUSTRA+ scholarship is not as generous as the Erasmus+ grant.
