Advice for EU, EEA and Swiss students

The EU Settlement Scheme

Following the recent extensions of the Brexit deadline, it remains unclear if and when the UK will leave the European Union, and under what terms.

Regardless of what happens, having received information from UKCISA (the UK Council for International Student Affairs), as well as taking advice from other reliable sources across the UK higher education sector, ARU is encouraging all current students from the EU / EEA / Switzerland to apply for ‘settled’ or ‘pre-settled’ status under the EU Settlement Scheme.

The EU Settlement Scheme provides a straightforward way for EU / EEA / Swiss students who are currently resident in the UK to secure their right to remain in the UK, and continue with their courses at ARU.

Useful information about the EU Settlement Scheme has been published by UKCISA at the link below:
