International Students


If you are a national of a European Economic Area (EEA) country or Switzerland, you do not need a visa to study in the UK. The countries in the EEA are:

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

There are currently no changes to the status of EEA nationals coming to the UK following the EU referendum result in June 2016. This means EEA nationals currently have the freedom of movement to live and study/work in the UK. For information on arrangements after the UK leaves the EU, see the guidance on the EU Settlement Scheme. Further information about Brexit is provided in the University's Brexit FAQs
