Brexit Day has arrived!

Brexit Day has arrived and tonight, at 23:00 GMT, the UK is leaving the EU! Brexit becomes reality and the transition period starts.

During the transition period, the UK will continue to adhere to EU rules, including on freedom of movement. That means that EU citizens have the right to live and work in the UK and gives the UK citizens the right to do the same in EU countries.

For the next 11 months, the UK and the EU will negotiate a future trading relationship and resolve key issues like immigration policy and security cooperation.

On 31st December 2020, when the transition period ends, the big change will come! What is the UK changing? No-one knows yet…

If you are an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen, studying or planning to study in the UK, keep an eye on this Brexit guidance for EU students in the UK.
