Information for applicants from the EU

You will be aware that the UK is in the process of leaving the European Union.  This means freedom of movement will be affected after 31 December 2020.  However, the HSC will continue to welcome and value staff and trainees from Europe as it does the whole world.

The UK will have left the European Union on January 31 2021 and we are currently in the transition period until 31 December 2020 during which all EU law will still apply to the UK. EU citizens and their family members will be able to move to the UK until 2021, with the same rights to work and study freely. For EU citizens who live in the UK by 31 December 2020, you are eligible to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme.  All EU citizens who have lived in the UK for more than five years continuously will be eligible for ‘settled status’ (equivalent to indefinite leave to remain).  If you have lived in the UK for less than five years you will be eligible for ‘pre-settled status’ and can upgrade this to ‘settled status’ when you have been here for five years.  More information on the settlement scheme can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/settled-status-eu-citizens-families

The UK is introducing a new points based immigration system from 1 January 2021.  If you intend to visit work or study in the UK from 1 January 2021 you can find out more information on what you need to do here https://www.gov.uk/guidance/new-immigration-system-what-you-need-to-know.
