We know that the EU Referendum decision has caused many of our staff great uncertainty as we employ many diverse nationalities in our community. The College has set up a legal and financial support package for European Economic Area (EEA) staff and their dependants to help staff understand their options.

Detailed FAQs are also available online, developed in conjunction with immigration specialists to help staff understand their options. Access the FAQs

We are currently running a series of presentations outlining the residency and citizenship routes currently available plus advice on making applications to the Home Office. These are being provided by an immigration specialist from the law firm, Farrer & Co.

If you have not yet attended a presentation session, please register details and availability as a priority. Places will be filled on a ‘first come first served’ basis. Confirmation of a place on one of the presentations will be sent by email as soon as possible. If you wish to attend a presentation and are unable to attend on any of these dates, please note that further dates will be made available on an ongoing basis. If you have already attended one of our earlier presentation sessions, please do not register again as the presentation content remains unchanged.

Following attendance at one of our presentation sessions, we are also offering individual assistance and support with the completion of personal applications. As immigration advice is a regulated activity Imperial HR staff are not licensed to advise in this area. The College has therefore engaged a specialist immigration firm and has committed to providing up to one hour's legal advice (including support with completion of applications).

There are some costs associated with residency and citizenship applications. An interest-free loan for staff and their dependants will be available to help fund these personal costs. If an individual’s circumstances are particularly complex and exceed the one to one advice and support available then this interest free loan will also be made available to fund further legal support as required.

Please see the Salary Advance for UK immigration application fees form for further details.

Full details on how to access the individual support and the interest-free loan will be provided following attendance at a presentation.

Staff can contact directorofhr@imperial.ac.uk if there is any further information that would be helpful and we will attempt to respond to queries as soon as possible. We are committed to making this time of transition as painless as possible for our staff.
