On June 23rd, 2016, the UK voted to leave the EU (European Union). Brexit, or British Exit, is a way of describing the UK leaving the EU. The EU is a collaboration of 28 member states that allows the free movement of goods and services within the EU. Along with this is the freedom of movement for EU nationals to both study and work in areas of the EU without a need for a work visa or British passport.
In March 29, 2017, Article 50 of the Treaty of Lisbon was triggered, giving the UK two years to negotiate an exit deal. This date is also the minimum agreed date for EU migrants to be able to secure UK settlement rights after Brexit.
