Top Civil Engineering BEng and BSc courses in Europe outside UK

Updated: Apr 25, 2022

Students from the European Union wishing to study in Britain from the 2021 academic year will have to pay higher fees because of Brexit, the UK government has confirmed.

  • Until now, EU students shared the same status as their British counterparts and as such paid the same fees. They could also access UK government loans to pay those fees.

  • Currently, British and EU nationals pay fees of up to £9,250 (€10,210) per year for an undergraduate degree.


As per Euronews:

Nick Hillman, director of the Higher Education Policy Institute think tank, described the government decision as "not a huge surprise".

He also went to add:

"Moreover, history suggests that the education on offer in our universities is something people are willing to pay for," he went on, calling for the government to nevertheless "adopt sensible post-Brexit migration rules".

Currently, British and EU nationals pay fees of up to £9,250 (€10,210) per year for an undergraduate degree.

The fees for international students vary from between £10,000 (€11,040) and £38,000 (€41,945) depending on the university and the degree.


Nevertheless, EUROPE'S Universities offer one of the best courses for studying Civil Engineering. Here are a couple of the top of the top
