The Current Position of the UK Government to EU citizens living in the UK

On 26th June 2017 the UK government published Safeguarding the Position of EU Citizens Living in the UK and UK Nationals Living in the EU. This sets out its proposed offer for EU nationals in the UK.  These proposals will be the subject of negotiations with the EU27 and may be subject to change.  On the same date, the government also published updated advice to EU nationals in the UK which contains the core statement that: “there is no need for EU citizens living in the UK to do anything now. There will be no change to the status of EU citizens living in the UK while the UK remains in the EU.”

The College commits to all EU colleagues working at the College in any capacity, as soon as there are any significant developments or agreements over the legal position and any related processes that individuals would be required to follow, that we will provide all necessary support and assistance in aid of any residency application requirements.
