The Home Office has announced that EU nationals currently working in universities will be prioritised in the second pilot phase of the new post-Brexit migration status scheme.

This follows a successful initial pilot of the new Settled Status scheme involving some NHS trusts and universities in the North West of England. Applications are open from 1 November, with the pilot finishing on 21 December 2018. It will test the online application process  that will later be used by approximately 3.5 million EU nationals that live in the UK.

The final closing date for EU nationals to apply for settled status will be 30 June 2021.
