June 30th deadline to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme

June 30 is the deadline for people and their family members to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) if they are an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen. This has important consequences for access to study and free education - without this, students previously eligible to study without a visa and counted as a home student for funding and student loan purposes will lose this eligibility.

It is crucial that eligible parents apply to the Scheme themselves and check whether they need to do so on behalf of their children. Eligible children are required to have an application in their own right and no child of any age is covered by a parent’s application to the EUSS. There’s more information on this here on GOV.UK.  Applications to the EUSS are free and can be made online at www.gov.uk/eusettlementscheme, where you can also find out more information about how to apply. 

To provide additional guidance, an EUSS leaflet has been produced by the University of Liverpool, in partnership with the Home Office. It has been designed with children in mind and is intended to support both children and parents with information to help them apply to the EUSS. A set of accompanying FAQs are available too. 

A list of organisations providing additional EUSS guidance and information is available on GOV.UK here.
