Brexit and EU/EEA Pupils
The government has announced that the UK's new Student and Child Student routes, which are part of the UK's new points-based immigration system, will open for applications on 5 October 2020. These new routes will replace the existing Tier 4 (General) and Tier 4 (Child) student routes.
From 5 October, all prospective international students, including those from Europe coming to study in the UK after the end of the transition period, will need to apply through the Student route before coming to the UK. Further guidance for EEA students can be found here.
EEA students resident in the UK on or before 31 December 2020 do not need to apply through the route. They, and their family, are eligible to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme and have until 30 June 2021 to do so. More information on the EU Settlement Scheme can be found here.
The UK Government has produced a Guide to the New Points Based Immigration System which will apply to all overseas pupils wishing to study at Sandroyd.
All overseas pupils studying at Sandroyd will be provided with a hard copy letter of confirmation from the Headmaster indicating they are full-time students at the School to help ease transit through immigration control.
