EU students and the Brexit Settlement Scheme

What is the settlement scheme?

  • If you’re an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen, you and your family can apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK after 30 June 2021. If your application is successful, you’ll get either settled or pre-settled status, depending on how long you have lived in the UK.
  • The EEA includes the EU countries and also Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.
  • You may be able to stay in the UK without applying - for example, if you’re an Irish citizen or have indefinite leave to remain.
  • You can apply now if you meet the criteria. The deadline for applying is 30 June 2021 (assuming the UK leaves with a deal).
  • If the UK leaves the EU without a deal you will need to be living in the UK before it leaves the EU to apply. The deadline for applying will be 31 December 2020.
  • It’s free to apply to the scheme.

GU Environmental Task Force Clean Up: 18/09/19


After the successful launch of GU Volunteering's ‘Glasgow University Environmental Task Force’ (GUETF) last year, the good work continues. We're back! Faces old and new are invited to join us for GUETF's first event of 2019/2020. No experience necessary, just a willingness to chip-in and a positive attitude. GUETF is a student-led, staff-supported project which links up with the local community to help make Glasgow a greener, cleaner place for all. For this event, we're going to clean-up the streets around campus; University Avenue, Kelvin Way and nearby, right after Freshers' Fair today.

Student Parents’ Resources

The SRC have been working over the years to ensure that the University has adequate support in place for student parents. We have been heavily involved in the creation of the University Student Parents’ Policy (now live) and in celebration have decided to compile a list of useful resources that student parents may find helpful:

Statement of support for trans and non-binary students and staff

The University of Glasgow Students’ Representative Council and LGBT+ Staff Network believe unequivocally in a culture of respect and dignity for students and staff. In the current climate of overwhelming misinformation in the media regarding trans and non-binary people, we see an even greater need to support our trans and non-binary students, peers and colleagues. Academic freedom is not interchangeable with respect, nor is it to be used as an excuse to demonise anyone. To do so is an insult to the vast majority of academics and their work. We proudly stand by our trans and non-binary students and staff; you are an integral and valuable part of our University community which is strengthened by its diversity.
