About this course

This course was last updated in August 2023.

There were thought to be between three to four million EU citizens and their family members living in the UK, although nobody was quite sure of the exact numbers. As the EU Settlement Scheme has now received over seven million applications, it can be safely said that the original estimates were some way off.

As a result of Brexit, almost all EU citizens and their family members needed to apply for a new immigration status by 30 June 2021 to continue living legally in the UK. With very few exceptions, anyone who had not applied for an immigration status by the deadline will be living unlawfully in the UK from that point. Those who have applied (including those who applied late) are provided temporary rights whilst they await their decisions. This includes the right to work and access the NHS.

The Scheme will continue to run for many years. Not least because eligible family members who are not living in the UK by the end of 2020 can still apply to join EU sponsors who have status under the Scheme.

This course provides an overview of the system under which EU citizens and their families can acquire status under the Scheme, including those who are applying after the deadlines. You can check out the course contents below.
