The Education (Student Fees and Support) (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2020.

Date published: 21 December 2020

The purpose of these regulations is to make technical amendments to higher education student finance regulations. First, to ensure that the current eligibility rules continue to apply on and after Implementation Period (IP) completion day as the department has already provided assurances that EU nationals who start courses in the 2020/21 academic year or before will continue to be eligible for ‘home’ fee charges and student support for the duration of their courses.  Second, to reflect the fact that from IP completion day the UK will no longer be treated as a member of the EU.
