For staff


Following the EU Referendum in June 2016, the University has been working to assist its EU/EEA and Swiss staff with legal and practical guidance around residency and citizenship options. It is the government’s ambition to document all EU/EEA/Swiss nationals who are present in the UK, through the introduction of ‘Settled’ and ‘Pre-Settled’ status. This scheme was opened fully to the public in March 2019.

Following the success of similar sessions which we ran last year, we are pleased to offer a further series of presentations which will provide information on current residency rights, and a detailed overview of the settled and pre-Settled status application process, and details on how to apply for British Citizenship if desired. These presentations give you the opportunity to see the application process first hand and to give you the information you need to make an application.

Note: In the event the UK leaves the EU on 31 October 2019 with ‘no deal’ there is no obligation or requirement for EU/EEA or Swiss citizens to gain settled or pre-settled status by this date. The deadline for applications in the event of a no-deal is currently 31 December 2020.

The presentations will be led by Graeme Ross, the Immigration and Compliance Manager at the University, who is an experienced UK and EU immigration practitioner.

The sessions will be held as follows:

  • 12 September 1-3pm  - Main Lecture Theatre, Ground floor, Zoology Building, Downing Street
  • 19 September 10-12pm  - Lecture Theatre 1, Ground floor, Veterinary Medicine Building, Madingley Road
  • 26 September 10-12pm -  Martin Cohen Lecture Theatre, CRUK Cambridge Research Institute, Li Ka Shing Centre, Robinson Way

Further sessions will be made available should there be sufficient demand. There will be an opportunity at the end of each presentation for questions and answers.
