To ask the Secretary of State for Education, whether non-UK EU students starting academic or technical courses ‎in college or school sixth forms in 2019 will continue to be eligible for funding until they finish their course.

In order to be eligible for funding for 16-19 education and training a student must have the legal right to be resident in the United Kingdom at the start of their study programme. A non-UK EU citizen legally resident in the UK at the start of their course will continue to be eligible for the duration of their course.

The published document 'Funding guidance for young people 2018 to 2019: funding regulations' sets out the eligibility rules that apply for all of the funding year, from 1 August 2018 to 31 July 2019, and states that EU and EEA nationals are eligible for funding for this period. We expect to publish the guidance for 2019 to 2020 in spring 2019.
