BREXIT & advice for EU, EEA & Swiss staff

An extension to the UK’s membership has set the current departure date from the EU at 31 January 2020. Meanwhile, the UK government and the EU have negotiated a withdrawal agreement. This must now be approved by parliament to come into effect.


We are here to help


Ever since the EU referendum result was announced, the University has been clear that European staff are greatly valued members of the Oxford community. It is committed to ensuring that all European colleagues keep the rights and freedoms they currently enjoy.

The Staff Immigration Team (SIT) are here to assist anyone within the collegiate University with queries about their own status as a European and that of their family members, or about the status of European staff, and the applications they may wish to make.

The EU Settlement Scheme opened fully on 30 March 2019 and the process of applying for Pre-Settled or Settled status should be fairly straightforward in most cases.

If you wish to discuss your status or have questions about the EU Settlement Scheme, please contact either or in the Staff Immigration Team.

Please email if you would like to be added to a mailing list to receive updates from the University when announcements are made by the government that may affect EU/EEA staff.
