The Scottish Government has confirmed that it will extend the funding of EU students up to the 2019-20 cohort.

The news has been welcomed by the Principal, Professor Sir Anton Muscatelli who said: "The statement from the Scottish Government provides much needed clarity and security both for prospective students from the EU and for us as a University.

"We made clear from the moment that the referendum result on Brexit was declared, that the University of Glasgow is a European institution that values and welcomes students - and staff - from the EU and that we will continue to do so, whatever political settlement is finally agreed upon.

"This announcement that the Scottish Government has extended the funding of tuition fees for students from the EU to the 2019/20 cohort is extremely good news."

The President of the Students’ Representative Council, Kate Powell, also welcomed the announcement. Kate said: "EU students are an important part of our university community and we are extremely pleased that we can welcome these students to Glasgow in 2019-20."
