The impact of Brexit on citizen’s rights continues is a key concern for many people. Right now UK/EU citizens can live, work and study anywhere in the EU/UK, but with the triggering of Article 50 people have been concerned about whether these rights will remain protected.

What do you think? 


Have your say

  It is crucial to stress the importance of international education for young people from both the UK and the EU. I have experienced myself how beneficial the opportunity of receiving further education abroad can be. International education helps students to grow their character, foster cross-cultural skills that are crucial in today’s globalised world and get to know the importance and power of diversity. Being exposed to other opinions and teaching principles will strengthen their...

Hi! I think for the purpose of intellectual exchange and more generally curiosity, the agreement for EU students as it stands should be upheld. English universities will attract less european talent if it decides to treat its european student neighbours as it currently treats "overseas students". I feel that an economy greatly benefits from people who got taught different ways of how to think and come from different educational systems to converge their interest and capabilities. Loosing...

When discussing our exit from the European Union it is often assumed one can either have a hard Brexit, outside both the customs union and the single market, or you can be inside the customs union, or you can be inside the customs union and the single market. The Norway option is often assumed to be the latter, however what Norway actually shows us is that Britain can trade with Europe and make trade deals with the rest of the world independently, and Britain can do this by remaining in the...

Brexit should not affect the rights of people within the UK/EU to travel, work and live across the continent. The current system of free movement allows those who work in Britain the ability to travel and see their families with ease. This should remain a priority in the negotiations surrounding Britain's borders.

As a German who grew up in London, the discussion about the rights of EU citizens remaining in the UK is a key concern. The debate about cut-off dates of entry, minimum years spent in the UK, by which courts will shape EU national's rights, etc. makes many Europeans who built a life in the UK over many years (myself included) unwelcome in their newly found home country. Being used as a bargaining chip in order to ensure access to the European Single Market, or to somehow effect the "Brexit...

The whole point of Brexit is to change the rights of both EU and UK nationals, both inside of the UK and in other European countries - including their right to move and reside freely. Now, what these rights will look like, are at the moment unknown, but we can defiantly expect peoples movement to be restricted and this includes the right to study, which might in the future require EU nationals to pay international tuition fees in the UK, and the same for British citizens in other European...

I wouldn't expect to be able to study in another country unless universities and colleges in that country were actively marketing foreign students with government backing. I would not expect to obtain a student place at the expense of a local student in that country who met the eligibility criteria for the course in question. If the university has deliberately increased supply of student places to attract foreign students in addition to local students then, with government backing this...

I wouldn't expect to be able to work in another country unless my skills & experience were sufficiently sought after by businesses there such that I was welcomed by the government of that country to support a growing economy or maintain public services. I would not expect to do a job that could be filled by somebody in that country who was currently unemployed. I would therefore expect to have to get a fixed term work visa (X years or lifetime) before getting a job in that country. I...

I wouldn't expect to live in another country unless my residence there was welcomed by the government of that country. I wouldn't expect them to be able to manage demand for public services without some element of control and I would expect them to prioritise their own citizens over me if there were any supply or availability issues. I would therefore expect to have to get a fixed term residence visa (X years or lifetime) before buying or renting a property in that country. That residence...

Now, grannnys and grandads can come to UK to live with their children & grandchildren. They can come to help with childcare, or because they are recently widowed, or just so they can live their last years together.  The Brexit deal needs to guarantee the rights of families (parents, grandparents, children, grandchildren) to live together. Freedom of movement based on family ties should be guaranteed by both U.K. & EU.
