You make an enormous contribution to your programmes, the whole UCL community and to London and I want to reassure you that you will continue to eligible for home fee status not just for next year but for the duration of your programme. Looking ahead to 2021-22 when the new fee arrangements come into effect for new students, I very much hope that we will continue our long tradition of welcoming students from across Europe.’
