EU Set­tle­ment Scheme

All you need to know about apply­ing for EU Set­tled Status

To live and study in the UK, you need to apply for EU Set­tled Sta­tus, or Pre-Set­tled Sta­tus, if you are an EU/EEA or Swiss national.

Fol­low­ing the UK’s depar­ture from the EU, new rules now apply to EU cit­i­zens study­ing in the UK. To become a stu­dent of Not­ting­ham Col­lege, you will need to have obtained EU set­tled sta­tus or pre-set­tled sta­tus. The dead­line for appli­ca­tions is 30th June 2021

What does this mean?

The EU Set­tle­ment Scheme allows you and your fam­i­ly mem­bers to get the immi­gra­tion sta­tus you need to con­tin­ue to live, work and study in the UK. It means that when it comes time to enrol or re-enrol with us this July and August, you should have all the doc­u­ments you need to enrol successfully. 

Who needs to apply?

If you are an EU, EEA or Swiss cit­i­zen, res­i­dent in the UK by 31 Decem­ber 2020, you and your fam­i­ly need to apply to the EU Set­tle­ment Scheme to con­tin­ue liv­ing, and study­ing, in the UK

The only peo­ple who do not need to apply for the EU Set­tle­ment Scheme are those who have indef­i­nite leave to enter the UK, indef­i­nite leave to remain in the UK or have British or Irish cit­i­zen­ship includ­ing dual citizenship’. 

How to apply?

You need to com­plete a short 3‑step online appli­ca­tion form using a com­put­er, tablet or mobile phone. Once you have made an appli­ca­tion for your­self, this can be linked to your fam­i­ly member’s appli­ca­tion, using your unique appli­cant number. 

It is free to apply to the EU Set­tle­ment Scheme. 

Appli­ca­tion guid­ance can be found at www​.gov​.uk/​s​e​t​t​l​e​d​-​s​t​a​t​u​s​-​e​u​-​c​i​t​i​z​e​n​s​-​f​a​m​ilies

What if I miss the dead­line or don’t apply?

The EU Set­tle­ment Scheme has an appli­ca­tion dead­line of 30th June 2021, mean­ing that any­one who miss­es the cut-off to apply suc­cess­ful­ly for a post-Brex­it sta­tus may not be per­mit­ted to live, work or study in the UK. You may not be able to con­tin­ue with your course here with us or if you are an appli­cant, you may not be able to enrol.
