Brexit

Urdang Academy has always proudly welcomed students and staff from the EU, EEA and Switzerland.

On January 31st 2020 the UK officially left the EU. There is now a transition period until the end of 2020 while the UK and EU negotiate additional arrangements. The current rules on trade, travel, and business for the UK and EU will continue to apply during the transition period. New rules will take effect on 1 January 2021.

Check how to get ready for new rules in 2021

Although we recognise that the ongoing uncertainty about Brexit is unsettling, we will continue to monitor developments and help you understand what is happening. Please continue to check this page. While we will try to keep this information as up-to-date as possible, due to the pace of change we cannot be held liable for any inaccuracies and would encourage you to also check official channels.

Regularly updated Brexit FAQs for universities and students are also available on the Universities UK website.

If you’re a national of an EU member state, or of Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein or Switzerland and will be studying with us in 2020/21 you are advised to apply for pre-settled or settled status free of charge before 30 June 2021.

Current students

If you are on our BA (Hons) Degree you can still reapply for Student Finance for the academic year 2020/21 and (if required) 2021/22 via www.gov.uk

We anticipate that there may be working restrictions after 31 December 2020, but do not yet know what these might be. Until 31 December 2020, EU, EEA and Swiss citizens will be free to work in the UK as they do now.

If you plan to remain in the UK after you graduate you should apply to stay under the above settlement scheme before 30 June 2021.

This information doesn’t apply to Irish citizens: you will have the right to continue to enter and live in the UK under Common Travel Area Arrangements.

Incoming students

We know that EU, EEA and Swiss students who want to study in the UK may be concerned about issues such as fees and immigration. Urdang can assure you that for the academic year 2020/21:

  • There are no changes to fee eligibility for EU, EEA and Swiss students
  • BA (Hons) Degree students can still apply for Student Finance for the duration of their course from March 2020 via www.gov.uk
  • You will not need an immigration visa if you arrive in the UK before 1 January 2021, when we expect the rules will change.

We anticipate that there may be working restrictions after 31 December 2020, but do not yet know what these might be. Until 31 December 2020, EU, EEA and Swiss citizens will be free to work in the UK as they do now.

This information doesn’t apply to Irish citizens: you will have the right to continue to enter and live in the UK under Common Travel Area Arrangements.
