What will Brexit mean for EU students in 2019?shafiq
It is vital for the United Kingdom that our sector remains welcoming to EU students, while also continuing to collaborate with partner research networks across Europe.
The UK has given formal notification of its intention to withdraw from the European Union (by triggering Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union), but still remains a member of the European Union. Therefore, there is no immediate change to the position of EEA nationals in the UK. Students and their family members can continue to exercise their residency rights in the UK.
The process of leaving the EU is likely to take a minimum of two years from the date the UK gave notification of its intention to leave the EU (29 March 2017). The position of EEA nationals in the UK remains unchanged throughout this time. The general position for EU nationals in the UK after the UK’s withdrawal from the EU is still being negotiated as part of the final Brexit agreement.
