Students: Guide to making an application in the UK

Author: Colin Yeo


Who is a "student" in EU law?

The right to reside as a student is derived from Article 7(1)(c) of the Citizens’ Directive, which provides for a right of residence for those who:

— have comprehensive sickness insurance cover in the host Member State and assure the relevant national authority, by means of a declaration or by such equivalent means as they may choose, that they have sufficient resources for themselves and their family members not to become a burden on the social assistance system of the host Member State during their period of residence
