After receiving our first enquiry about how Brexit will affect Buckswood Overseas Summer School (BOSS) and our students, we thought it would be a good idea to share what we currently know.
The good news is that right now, even in the case of a 'no deal' situation, European Union citizens will be able to enter the United Kingdom to visit, work or study after the 29th March 2019 (the day that the UK will officially leave the EU). For stays longer than 3 months however (something that does not affect BOSS students), ‘European Temporary Leave to Remain’ will be required.
What else do we know about Brexit right now?
If the British Government agrees a withdrawal agreement with the EU before the 29th March 2019, there will be a transition period in place until 31st December 2021. During this period, the British Government will work on developing a new immigration system for the UK which will only come into effect after the 31st December 2021.
During the transition period, EU citizens will be able to study in the UK without obstacle. However, if the duration of study is more than 3 months, EU citizens must apply for 'European Temporary Leave to Remain'. This is not something that BOSS students will need to do as our longest course is 7 weeks.
To summarise from what we know today, Brexit will not affect any EU students who are coming, or are planning to come and study with us in 2019.
