At Study Inn, we’re committed to the wellbeing of our students. We believe we have an obligation to the young people who stay with us, to make their time at university as happy and fulfilling as possible.
This extends to the entire Study Inn family, including our hugely valued international community. Leaving home for the first time can be a daunting prospect, and doubly so if it involves moving to a different country and getting used to a new way of life. With this in mind, we try to make this transition period as seamless as possible for those coming to us from abroad.
However, we recognise that the recent decisions surrounding the UK’s exit from the European Union have caused confusion for many. To help clarify what this means for you, here’s a brief rundown of what you need to know if you’re coming to stay with us this September.
Whether you choose to stay in either of our Bristol, Loughborough, Exeter, Nottingham, Leicester or Leeds student accommodation this year, you may be confused about how much you will be paying to attend university. There’s been so much information swirling around in the media that it becomes difficult to separate fact from fiction.
However, we do have some good news for you. As it stands, the fees you’ll be asked to pay for the academic year 2020/2021 remain the same, with the UK currently in a transition period that will only end in December of this year.
This means you won’t see any increase in fees until 2021/2022. Naturally, this will only impact tuition – the fees you pay to us will remain the same no matter where you’re from.
If you have secured your university course in the UK then now is the time to take advantage of the domestic student prices for EU students before the price increases post-Brexit. If you are still contemplating applying to study within the UK for the 2020/21 academic year, you still have time to apply for a course through clearing ahead of the Brexit deadline until the end of the year.
Another big change that students are getting to grips with is how covid-19 will impact their learning experience. Now you’ve got your exam results, and have either accepted an offer to your university of choice or found a place through university clearance, it’s time to start planning your new life.
However, many are unsure of how their experience is likely to be affected by coronavirus. Each academic institution has its own processes in place to take care of you and create a safe learning environment, and this is something our Study Inn team is also taking very seriously.
In light of this, we’ve put a number of measures in place to keep you safe, including implementing social distancing in all of our buildings and providing hand sanitisation stations throughout.
As part of our pledge to you, we promise to:
