Brexit may be (somewhere) on the horizon, but there's good news for EU students considering postgraduate study in the UK:
The UK has guaranteed that EU students starting a degree in 2019-20 will pay the same fees as UK students and continue to have access to student loans and other funding for the duration of their courses.
It means that:
Previously, guarantees only applied to courses starting this year (2018-19). They've now been extended to next year (2019-20) too. This is confirmed in Scotland, England and Wales. We'll update this page as soon as we know if Northern Ireland is doing the same (we think they will).
This will depend on the UK's Brexit negotiations and the terms of any ongoing deals with the European Union.
At the moment it looks as if the UK will enter into a two-year transition agreement with the EU after Brexit takes place on the 29 March 2019. This could see EU students given the right to start degrees on the same terms as UK students in 2020-21, but the exact details aren't confirmed yet.
