Brexit - The Current Position

The UK government has reached an agreement with the EU that will protect the rights of EU citizens and their family members living in the UK.  It has also reached an agreement with Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein, and a separate agreement with Switzerland.

These agreements mean that most citizens from the EU, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland will need to apply to stay in the UK.

If this applies to you and/or your family members, you can use the tool on the government website at: https://www.gov.uk/staying-uk-eu-citizen to find out what to do and when.

Additionally, you can subscribe to the Gov.UK email alert service for automatic updates whenever Brexit policy is published or updated: https://www.gov.uk/government/policies/brexit/email-signup

Universities UK, which is the body that acts as the collective ‘voice’ of universities, is a recommended source for wider information on the implications of Brexit for the College and its students: https://www.universitiesuk.ac.uk/policy-and-analysis/brexit/Pages/brexit-and-universities.aspx

Whilst the College is not able to provide specific advice, if the effects of this situation are impacting on your mental wellbeing, please be reminded that we have a free to access staff counselling services (Only Connect) where additional support may be gained.  Further detail and access to the service is via the link here.
