The UCL European Institute presents a webinar on the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) with Dr Alexandra Bulat, Young Europeans Network Co-Chair, the3million, and UCL SSEES alumna. She will discuss the position of students under the Settlement Scheme, as well as her own research and activism in the EU immigration space.
Following the legislative changes to the status of EU students, there is confusion among current and prospective students, particularly regarding their eligibility for Home Fees. This session aims to clarify some of these issues, and to provide guidance for EU students on their rights under the EUSS. It is targeted toward current students, who will be encouraged to apply for (pre)settled status if eligible.
Dr Alexandra Bulat will speak on the implications of immigration policy changes for EU students in the UK. She will also discuss her path from higher education to activism and politics, and the gap in electoral representation affecting EU migrants. This informative event will feature a political analysis on what the Scheme means for EU students studying in the UK. Her presentation will inform EU students of their rights to participate in UK politics, and give a background on the issues EU students are facing with regards to education.
Her talk will be followed by a Q+A. Temoor Raja, UCL’s Student Immigration Advice Manager, will be able to answer questions about the EUSS application process, as well as the resources that UCL has available for EU students.
Students and staff are welcome to register and attend, though attendance is particularly recommended for students who have not yet applied under the Settlement Scheme. The events will be recorded and circulated to prospective students who may be affected.
