Glitches in the EU Settlement Scheme

Designs for a better future – is immigration the key to preserving the UK’s post-Brexit architecture sector?

The Royal Institute for British Architects (RIBA) have published a recent study outlining that the end of free movement post-Brexit could potentially jeopardise the UK’s £4.8 billion architecture sector as nearly half of EU architects have considered leaving.  However recent changes have been set in motion to help mitigate this by helping to attract new and upcoming talent in the sector.

Deal or no deal: what Brexit could mean for my German mother

With less than four months to go until the UK leaves the European Union (EU), we still don’t know what deal, if any, the UK will have with the EU. A big part of that deal relates to securing the rights of the more than 3 million EEA citizens living in the UK. While the Government has confirmed their intention to roll out the proposed Settled Status scheme regardless as to whether the withdrawal agreement is approved, those seeking greater certainty about their status and who are eligible, are looking to naturalise as British citizens. For some Europeans, the decision to naturalise is a simple one. For others, it may mean giving up their existing nationality.
