Universities Wales response to Welsh Government’s statement on 2017/18 EU students

Universities Wales welcome the rapid response by Welsh Government regarding 2017/18 EU student applicants to our Welsh universities. The guarantee of continued access to student loans and grants for the duration of their course is crucially important to students who are currently considering and applying for places at our universities in Wales. We believe this statement will provide reassurance in this uncertain time and we would like to thank the Cabinet Secretary for Education for her ongoing commitment to ensure that Wales can continue to attract the brightest and best students from all over the world. As a welcoming nation with a world-class higher education experience to offer international students, Universities Wales is keen to continue working closely with the Cabinet Secretary and Welsh Government to promote and protect Wales’ reputation as a friendly and tolerant place to study and carry out world-class research.
