Should the UK leave the EU without a deal, you should talk with the university or college where you are currently studying about your options.
You can sign up to receive updates as and when new information becomes available, which includes information from UCAS about transferring to a UK university or college.
We also advise that you regularly check Foreign and Commonwealth Office updates for further advice and guidance.
If you are considering returning to the UK to study, you may want to start researching courses at universities and colleges. Each course will have different entry requirements; the UCAS website will be able to give you more information.
Not all higher education providers are listed on UCAS and you may need to contact some directly.
You may also want to research the tuition and living costs for courses in which you are interested, and the financial support available.

Applying to transfer
If you want to transfer you will have to apply, showing that you meet the requirements for the UK course and demonstrating your learning and achievements to date. This may affect the point within a course from which you can continue your studies.
You should collect from your current institution as much relevant information you can, such as:
- a transcript of studies – with the ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) values where possible
- certification for credit that you have accumulated or modules you have completed
- an exit award (generally a level below your current level)
- a combination of these.
