B: EU students
At the moment, it appears that the UK government’s position is that, from August 2021, students from the EU will be classed as international students.
If you are an EU student living in the UK, you may want to take advantage of the EU Settlement Scheme. Any EU student with pre-settled or settled status will be able to apply to LIS. The settlement scheme has a number of deadlines and rules. A government summary can be found here.
We strongly recommend that you read more about the EU settlement scheme before you choose to apply for it. The main government advice is that you will “usually get settled status if you’ve:
- Started living in the UK by 31 December 2020.
- Lived in the UK for a continuous 5-year period (known as continuous residence).”
Any EU student with pre-settled or settled status will be eligible to study at LIS.
