To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what discussions she has had with the European Commission on (a) the status of EU students at British universities and (b) the status of British students at universities within the EU; and whether it is her policy that such student will be eligible for international student fees once Britain has left the EU.

No discussions have taken place yet. There are no immediate changes following the EU Referendum, including in the circumstances of British citizens studying, or planning to study, in the EU.

Future arrangements for studying abroad will need to be considered as part of wider discussions about the UK’s relationship with the EU.
