EU Settlement Scheme Pilot: A Briefing

Wed 7 Nov 2018


Following the EU Referendum in June 2016, the University has been working to assist its EU/EEA and Swiss staff with legal and practical guidance around residency and citizenship options. Going forward, the government is introducing the EU Settlement Scheme which is anticipated will rollout publicly no later than March 2019. The application system is being rolled out in a series of pilot phases.

From 15 November 2018, the next pilot will open, which will allow all EU staff working at a UK HEI to access the scheme and make an application for ‘Settled’ or ‘Pre-Settled’ status in advance of the public rollout. The pilot will be open until 21 December 2018.

With the introduction of this pilot, we are pleased to offer a series of briefings for staff which will provide information on current residency rights, and a detailed overview of the ‘Settled’ and ‘Pre-Settled’ status application process. These briefings will provide you with information about the EU Settlement Scheme and help you to make an application if you wish to do so, in advance of the full rollout next year.

The briefings will be led by Graeme Ross, the Immigration and Compliance Manager at the University, who is an experienced UK and EU immigration practitioner.

Target audience
  • All EU/EEA & Swiss members of University staff
  • Departmental Administrators
  • University HR staff
