As your Students’ Union we know and understand that Brexit will bring change to international students. We want to ensure that throughout this process you are informed on what is happening and how this will affect you.

This is why we undertook a research project which included an online survey, interviews, and focus groups to get your views, opinions, and suggestions on Brexit.

This info sheet has a quick overview of the main results.

The full results will be shared with the University and the Scottish Government so that they can be informed of the views of international students. We will continue to support University of Stirling students throughout and beyond the Brexit process.

If you'd like to read the full report, you can find it here

So what are we doing right now for you?

  • We have organised info sessions with an immigration lawyer to give you further guidance. If you would like to sign up for a session or read more about them, please click here
  • We are also organising 'dialogue dinners' which will be an event where free food is provided and we discuss a cultural topic. More information on these will be coming soon.

Update January 2019

You may be aware of recent reports that a public test phase of the EU Settlement Scheme opened on 21 January – ahead of the Scheme going live in March.

The EU Settlement Scheme is now open to most students, who are eligible to apply if they are either:

• an EU national with a valid passport (not identity card), or

• a non-EU citizen who has a residence card or permanent residence card issued on the basis of an application made under EU law provisions on or after 6 April 2015

Please visit the UK Government website, or the UK Council for International Student Affairs website, for information on applying under this scheme and updates on post-Brexit rules and entitlements.

The overall position for students currently studying in the UK, or for those intending to come to study in the academic year 2019/20, remains unchanged.

Your Union is here to support you and Make Students’ Lives Better.
