      Immigration requirements

      The implications depend on when you arrived, or will arrive, in the UK.

      If you arrive in the UK before 11pm on 31 December 2020:

      If you’re an offer holder from the EU, EEA or Switzerland you will not be required to apply for a study visa from your home country as long as you arrive in the UK before 11pm on 31 December 2020.

      If you arrive before that date you will have the right to free movement. This means you can study, live and work in the UK as now. In order to protect your rights after 11pm on 31 December 2020 (when the Brexit transition period ends), you will need to make an application under the EU Settlement Scheme. You can do this after you arrive in the UK. The deadline to apply is 30 June 2021 but BCOM will need you to apply before that date so that you can provide evidence of your right to study after the end of the transition period. The application process is easy, user-friendly and free of charge.

      If you arrive in the UK after 11pm on 31 December 2020:

      EU, EEA and Swiss citizens who move to the UK after 11pm on 31 December 2020 will need to apply through the UK points-based immigration system. The Government guidance to apply to study in the UK from 1 January 2021 can be found here.

      UKCISA guidance

      If you are planning to come to the UK to study during the next three years, UKCISA has an advice page about UK immigration, your eligibility for home fee status, student support and more.
