Current students

The immigration status, associated fee status as well as your access to your student loan has not changed as a result of the EU referendum vote. The Scottish government have announced that the fee position will remain the same for the duration of your studies with us so you don't need to worry about any changes.  You can find more details about Scottish Government funding at the Student Awards Agency Scotland  website.

As an Erasmus student your immigration status has not changed and you will continue to be eligible for your Erasmus grants until at least as long as we remain a member of the EU and this could be extended beyond this.

If you have any questions, please contact Heriot-Watt University Erasmus at  And also check the Erasmus+ website for updates.
