Travel information on Brexit

by / Thursday, 21 February 2019

As we are sure you have heard, the UK is very likely to leave the EU on the 29th March. But that doesn’t mean Scotland won’t welcome students after that date! Scotland is a welcoming and progressive nation and we deeply value how students, like yourself, add to the diversity of Glasgow.

Here is some practical information about travelling to and from the UK.

Travel to the UK

The good news is that there will be very few changes for EU/EEA students travelling to the UK after Friday 29 March until December 2020 even in case of a no deal. During this time, you can enter the UK exactly as before. You will also be able to use your ID cards.

Travel from the UK

If you are already studying with us and planning to travel around Brexit day, 29 March 2019, you can use your Letter of Acceptance which confirms your enrolment and start date. Showing your Letter of Acceptance when you return to the UK will mean you do not get a three-month entry stamp on your travel document and won’t have to apply for European Leave To Remain.


If you have any questions at all, please contact us and we will try to help you as best as we can.
