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...

From the Financial Times today: "The owner of pizzeria chain Franco Manca warned that the Brexit vote had started to affect the availability of European restaurant staff in the UK, potentially pushing up wages for new hires .".  If fewer EU workers in the UK means higher, fairer, wages for workers, should we really fight against this? Especially in the context of the real wage stagnation/depression that we're seeing. It's ordinary young people in particular who fill these type of...

Article 20 TFEU states “Citizenship of the Union shall be additional to and not replace national citizenship.” The CJEU has also asserted numerous times that “Citizenship of the Union is intended to be the fundamental status of nationals of the Member States” and that Article 20 TFEU precludes national measures that deprive citizens of the Union of the genuine enjoyment of the substance of rights conferred by status as citizens of the Union. Brexit threatens to do precisely that (i.e. take...

More than 3 million European citizens live in the United Kingdom, while more than 1 million British citizens live in the rest of Europe. These are important numbers that explain why this issue has a crucial role in the deal. In the past few days, the British Prime Minister May has assured that EU citizen currently living in the UK are not going to lose their right to stay, after Brexit. This is a big step forward in the deal! At this stage, the reciprocity is vital and the EU should also...

Taking away the rights of UK/EU citizens to live, work and study in the UK/EU would be seriously detrimental to the social cohesion of our community, especially our younger generation including ourselves. We must fully realise the major negative effects of this process and sustain this ongoing conversation surrounding the interaction of EU/UK citizens (via Generation Brexit!) in order to develop new ideas and platforms concerning how we can maintain a permanent interaction in the post Brexit...

Nice thought

EU and UK nationals have enjoyed since many years the benefits of being able to work and study abroad and mechanisms able to allow this are still in place. Setting up a Visa or ECSTA system, would be more costly and likely to determine a sharp decrease in mobility, with bad economic consequences. Of course, the same level of access has to be allowed by both parties. Therefore, UK should think carefully to its future immigration policy, assessing the consequences of the decisions taken....
