The UK formally left the EU at the end of 2020. Istituto Marangoni has a strong
tradition of welcoming students from all over the world including the EU. Originating in Italy, we have several Schools located in the EU and beyond. Many of our staff and students in our London School are from Europe who continue to remain an important part of our international community of scholars, designers and practitioners.
New EU Students commencing study in the London School after January 2021 (who were not resident in the UK by 11pm on 31 December 2020 and do not have EU Settled or Pre-settled status) will need to apply for a Student Route Visa, meet the specific requirements of the Home Office and apply for a CAS (Confirmation of Acceptance).
Existing EU/EEA students who commenced their study in the London School and were living in the UK by 11pm on 31 December 2020 do not need a visa to enter the UK but will need to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme. To be eligible, students must be resident by 11pm on 31 December 2020 and apply by no later than 30 June 2021 (https://www.gov.uk/settled-status-eu-citizens-families/applying-for-settled-status). A successful application will result in the grant of Settled Status (for individuals with 5 or more years of continuous residency) or Pre-Settled Status (for those with less than 5 years continuous residency). Holders of Pre-Settled Status can apply for Settled Status after 5 years of continuous residency in the UK.
New EU Students (joining a course in the London School on or after 1 August 2021) will be normally eligible for International Fees, unless they have settled or pre-settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme.
New EU Students may be eligible for student finance support if they have settled or pre-settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme. For more information please refer to the following link: https://www.gov.uk/student-finance
Istituto Marangoni London is offering the EU Residents Talent Scholarship (Transition Scheme) for 21/22 to support talented new EU resident students potentially impacted. The Scholarship is available to awarded new students (on any Foundation, Undergraduate & Postgraduate courses) as a tuition fee reduction for the academic year 2021/22. For further details, please see our information on potential scholarships for EU/EEA students here
Existing EU Students who commenced their study in the London School prior to or during 2020/21(including students joining in February 2021) will continue to be eligible for Home (UK/ EU) fees and subject to meeting other eligibility requirements, may also be able to receive Student Loan Company support for the duration of their current programme.
The London School Visa Manager is available to advise and support students through the visa application process.
New EU students commencing study in the London School after January 2021 (who were not resident in the UK by 11pm on 31 December 2020 and do not have EU Settled or Pre-settled status) will need to apply for a Student Route Visa,
New EU and International students requiring a Student Route Visa (previously called ‘Tier 4 Visa’) to study in the UK, will need to meet the entry requirements on the course plus be eligible for a CAS number (confirmation of acceptance of studies).
