We are aware the UK’s decision to leave the European Union has caused concern for many of our staff and we’d like to reassure everyone that the University is here to support. There have been several developments since the June 2016 referendum. The agreement reached between the UK and European Commission in Phase One of negotiations in respect of citizen’s rights makes the likely immigration applications necessary clearer.

In association with the EU Citizen's Staff Network group the University is working with Simon Kenny, an immigration lawyer from Eversheds Sutherland in Manchester, to provide support and advice to staff who are citizens of the European Economic Area and may be impacted by Brexit. A workshop will take place on Friday, 26th January at 10.15 am in Lower Maxwell Hall and staff are invited to attend this session. We have the room booked until 1pm so there will be plenty of time to ask questions. Simon will present information about this subject which will cover:

-  How to make EEA (Qualified Person) and

-  EEA (Permanent Residence) applications;

-  British nationality;

-  Settled status;      

-  Announcements to date regarding the future immigration system of the UK.

There will be an opportunity for staff to see how these applications are made online in the session.
