Information in case of No-deal Brexit

Information from the Ministry of Culture, 30 April 2019

On 19 March 2019, the Danish parliament adopted a legislative proposal (no. L 166) which extends existing EU-rights for British citizens in Denmark and their family members in the event that the United Kingdom leaves the EU without an agreement called the Danish Brexit act. The Danish Brexit act will only enter into force if the United Kingdom leaves the EU without an agreement.

The Danish Brexit act is a temporary scheme and will apply until replaced by a permanent solution. The Danish Brexit act applies to British citizens and their family members, who are legally residing in Denmark on the withdrawal date in accordance with EU-rules on free movement. The law will also apply to frontier workers who work in Denmark on the withdrawal date while residing in another EU/EEA-country.

The Danish Brexit act will secure your student rights according to EU law during the transition period, which means that you will have the same access to the Danish higher educational system as EU citizens have according to EU law. You will only have to pay tuition fees for education in Denmark where EU and EEA citizens pay tuition fees.

You will also have the same access to Danish student grants for education in Denmark and abroad as EU and EEA citizens have according to EU law. 

Further information regarding student grants, loans and support go to the website of Ministry of Higher Education and Science: “How does Brexit affect you?”
