There are thought to be between three to four million EU citizens and their family members living in the UK, although nobody is quite sure how many exactly. Almost all of them will need to apply for a new immigration status by 30 June 2021 if they want to continue living legally in the UK. With very few exceptions, anyone who has not acquired a new immigration status by the deadline will be living unlawfully in the UK at that point.
This course provides an overview of the system under which EU citizens and their families can acquire that new status: the EU Settlement Scheme. The scheme grants “pre-settled status” or “settled status”, depending on length of residence. You can check out the course contents below:
