On 31 January 2020 the UK exited the European Union, which means the UK is no longer an EU Member State. The Withdrawal Agreement, which was agreed prior to the UK’s departure, introduced a Transition Period until the end of 2020 under which EU laws continued to apply in the UK.

The UK Government and EU have been in negotiations since March on a future agreement that would apply from 1 January 2021 if agreed. These negotiations are set to conclude in October, with the meeting of the European Council on 15-16 October.

Whether or not a deal is agreed there will be significant changes that will affect students from the EU and from the EFTA countries (Iceland, Lichtenstein, Norway and Switzerland) studying in England, and the opportunities for UK nationals to live, work and study in EU/EFTA countries.
