    Hey guys,
    I just heard that the PM will be invoking Article 50 next Wednesday and the negotiations will begin, this has worried me as, although I have lived in the UK for over 17 years (I am 19 years old now), I am yet to start University and my degree is 4 years, so i am worried that something may happen that will stop me from continuing my education and applying for a UK Citizenship costs far too much for my family to afford right now, does anyone know the details on how EU nationals living in the UK will be affected ?

    Thanks

    Although it's not been revealed personally my Theresa May, it's believed EU citizens residing in the UK will be allowed to remain in the UK. I don't think you have anything to worry about

    Whats the point of being worried? Just deal with what ever happens when it happens. Live day by day. Not like you can change it

    1. The Brexit negotiations are likely to take 2 years before we leave the EU. That means you might have started Uni by then in which case funding will be preserved throughout the degree.

    2. Its likely any agreements will be phased in.

    3. It highly likely (almost certain) that EU citizens living in the UK at the time of either the referendum or immediately before Brexit will have their rights protected as they are now.

    Imo you have nothing to worry about.

    If you start before we actually leave then no worries.

    Also you already qualify to be a uk citizen you just have to fill out the forms etc like most eu nationals here

    She has adamantly said she will ensure EU citizens rights in the UK, that is why when such a measure was added as an amendment to the Brexit bill she and the rest of her party vehemently opposed such a measure, because, well, reasons?!?!?!?

    Because the line is its a negotiating tool and they also want to make sure UK citizens living in the EU are also protected. Confirming the rights of EU citizens before the reciprocal rights are confirmed is a loss of bargaining position. It will be part of the overall package.

    Oh I wasn't aware she actually confirmed it. Well then that answers the OP's question. The reason she won't kick them out is because those people may be in the middle on their education, how families here, undergoing medical treatment or whatever. Rightly so as well.

    Even Trump isn't kicking out people who came from Mexico legally or immigrants from the middle east so why on Earth would you think for a second that Theresa May would kick out EU citizens who are here legally?

    To clarify, she hasn't confirmed anything. She was given an opportunity to legally protect EU citizens and she actively worked to prevent that being that case. That is despite her rhetoric about the exact opposite.

    If I was an EU citizen in the UK I wouldn't be worried per se, but I would be concerned about the Tories incompetence generally and Theresa May's need to fight things just because she can.

    I don't think she will evict them, that would be the single fastest way to get the worst deal humanly possible from brexit.
