UK university group wants ‘bizarre’ three-year EU visa plan scrapped

February 28, 2019 / Richard Lochhead

A leading group of universities has called on the Home Secretary to scrap “bizarre” plans for non-extendable three-year visas for EU nationals following a no-deal Brexit, to avoid affecting students. The Russell Group wants Sajid Javid to drop plans for the European Temporary Leave to Remain (ETLR) scheme, claiming it is a “kick in the teeth” for both Scottish universities, where standard undergraduate courses last four years, and future EU students on longer courses, such medicine and engineering.
