International Students

 

If you are a national of a European Economic Area (EEA) country or Switzerland and moving to the UK to start full-time studies at Cambridge prior to 31 December 2020, you will not require a visa to study in the UK. The countries in the EEA are:

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, and Sweden.

If you are a national of a European Economic Area (EEA) country, or Switzerland and moving to the UK to start full-time studies at Cambridge after 31 December 2020, you are likely to need a student visa in order to study at the University.

If you are moving to live in the UK prior to 1 January 2021, you will not require a visa to study in the UK and can apply for a status under the EU Settlement Scheme after arrival. This scheme protects the longer-term rights of EEA and Swiss nationals. Further information about Brexit is provided in the University's Brexit FAQs

Irish citizens are not subject to UK immigration control and do not need to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme or a visa to live and study in the UK.
