October 2018 - IMPORTANT UPDATE: EU Settled Status Scheme - Following a successful trial of the new EU Settlement Scheme, which allows resident EU citizens and their family members to obtain their UK immigration status, the next phase of the roll-out has now been confirmed by the Home Office.
The second phase will run from 1 November to 21 December 2018 and will test the full online application process. Feedback from the trial has been very positive and we understand that the process is relatively straightforward.
As an employee of the University of Nottingham, you will be eligible to apply from 15 November 2018. Family members won’t be able to apply during this phase unless they are eligible through their own employment, but will be able to apply when the scheme fully opens in March 2019.
