International Researchers (including EU/EEA and Swiss nationals). Securing your right to stay in the UK – reminders & update.

EU/EEA and Swiss nationals – As the transition period for the UK leaving the EU draws near (31st December 2020) be sure to secure your status to ensure you can continue living and studying here post-Brexit. Further details and advice can be found here

If you are a current researcher on a Tier 4 visa and looking to take advantage of the Doctorate Extension Scheme (DES) then be sure to contact before your viva so that they can advise you on the process of extending your stay in the UK.

From 1 December 2020 the Tier 2 (General) route for sponsored skilled work will be replaced by the very similar new Skilled Worker route. You can find information on this change and helpful advice on searching for a job during the current pandemic on the UKCISA website here:
