Study English in Oxford - Brexit Update

What can EU students expect if they want to travel and study in the UK over the coming months? The good news is that there will be very few changes before the end of December 2020 and students can mostly come as they do now. From 2021 it will still be easy for students to enter the UK.

We look forward to welcoming students from the EU, EEA and Switzerland to learn English in the UK after Brexit. Find out more information here.
