Oxford Brookes students - JHBB

Following last month’s referendum result, which saw the UK vote to leave the European Union, Oxford Brookes has moved to help reassure students from the EU who are considering studying at the University in the 2017/18 academic year.

Oxford Brookes will guarantee that any EU students joining the University in the 2017/18 academic year will continue to pay EU level fees for the duration of their course, which is in line with fees levels for UK students.

We remain committed to being a University with a tolerant, inclusive and truly international outlook and our guarantee is a good example of this.

Professor Alistair Fitt, Vice-Chancellor

There are, of course, many unanswered questions related to the decision for the UK to leave the EU, but any EU students joining the University in 2017/18 will not move to International level fees for the duration of their programme, provided this continues to be permitted by UK law.

This is further to an earlier confirmation last week that Oxford Brookes will not change the tuition fees for EU students already published for the academic year 2016/17 and this will remain for the duration of the course (subject only to increases for inflation as set out in our Terms and Conditions).

Professor Alistair Fitt, Vice-Chancellor, commented: “There are naturally a number of questions which remain unanswered following the decision to leave the EU. However, we have been keen to stress that the process of leaving the EU will not happen overnight. 

“While we await further information both before and during the negotiations taking place, we felt it was important to reassure EU students who are considering studying at the University. We remain committed to being a University with a tolerant, inclusive and truly international outlook and our guarantee is a good example of this.”
