Right to work checks for EU nationals have changed from 1 July 2021

EU passports and ID cards can no longer be accepted. For most, an online check of their UK digital immigration status will be required. See the latest information on the 'Right to Work' HR web page.

The deadline for applying for the EU Settlement Scheme has passed.

EU nationals who were resident in the UK by 31 December 2020 needed to apply for the scheme by 30 June 2021. If you have not applied you may lose your right to remain in the UK. You must urgently check the UK Gov webpage for the EU Settlement Scheme for advice on what to do next.

See the University Brexit pages for the latest information about Brexit and what you need to do if you are an EU national arriving in the UK or a UK national travelling to the EU after 1 January 2021.
