Guidance for EU students post-Brexit

Latest update

EU Settlement Scheme open to students from 21 January 2019

EU citizens who wish to remain in the UK after it leaves the European Union will need to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme. This scheme has been tested in certain employment sectors over the last six months and will now be open for all members of the public, including most students, to apply for from 21 January 2019. As the UK is not due to leave the EU until 29 March 2019, applying for the scheme at this time is completely voluntary. You can find out more information on the UKCISA website. 

The University plans is running drop-in sessions where you can ask any questions you have about how to complete the EU Settlement Scheme application. Please come along on Wednesday 30 January at 2pm (room B227) and Thursday 31 January at 2pm (room T004). 

As you have probably seen in the news, the EU and the UK have signed the draft withdrawal agreement. If you are an EU citizen looking to start your course with us in 2019, you’re likely to have lots of questions. Here’s what we can tell you at the moment:

UK universities and colleges are working to ensure that as many EU students as possible can continue to study in the UK after Brexit. As negotiations continue, further changes in policy may be announced. The UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) have issued advice for EU students on post-Brexit rules and entitlements.
