EU Settlement Scheme to open to students

From 21 January 2019, the EU Settlement Scheme opened to most EU students currently residing in the UK.

EU citizens living in the UK who have a valid biometric passport are able to take part in this phase of the EU Settlement Scheme.

Currently, there are two categories that you can apply for:

Pre-settled status: if you have been resident in the UK for less than 5 years

Settled status: if you have been resident in the UK for 5 years or more

You may need to provide evidence of your enrolment at the University as part of your application. You can request a proof of study letter by emailing

Please note that MyPort are not able to assist with enquries relating to the EU Settlement Scheme or your application.

If you are eligible to apply for pre-settled or settled status, we recommend you apply for it as soon as possible. We recommend applying even if you are not intending to settle in the UK after your studies.

For further information on the settlement scheme and how to apply, visit the UKCISA web page.
