Whilst we encourage tutors from the EU, EEA and Switzerland to read official government resources about how Brexit will impact you, here’s some important info on how your immigration status relates to working with MyTutor:
- To tutor on our platform, you need to be classified as self-employed - and in a post-Brexit world not all Student Visas mean this is possible
- As a non-UK national, in order to register as self-employed you’ll need documents to confirm your right to reside and work in the UK, which can include either settled status or pre-settled status
- You don’t get to choose which status you apply for - they’re determined by how long you’ve lived in the UK
- Your rights will differ depending on which status you get, but as long as you have one, you’ll be able to continue tutoring on our platform in the UK on a self-employed basis
- To get either status, you need to have started living in the UK before 31 December 2020
- If that sounds like you, you’ll need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme by 30 June 2021 (but it’s recommended you do it as soon as possible)
Can you tell me more about settled and pre-settled status?
For more information about which status you’re eligible for, and what that means for you beyond MyTutor, check out this link.
How do I apply?
You’ll need to apply by 30 June 2021. You can do that anytime between now and then by following this link (but the sooner the better)! Once confirmed, your status will generally be communicated to you electronically.
What do I need to apply?
You’ll need ID and proof of your UK address - find out more here.
Does it cost money?
Do I need to upload anything to MyTutor?
What if my application is declined?
Unfortunately if you aren’t able to gain settled or pre-settled status (and don’t have another legal right to live and work in the UK), you’ll no longer be able to deliver tutorials as a sole trader on the MyTutor platform.
Where can I get additional help?
- The United Kingdom Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) has detailed information on the EU Settlement scheme, as well as a free student information line.
- The UK Government website has the application form, policy guidance, immigration rules and other important information.
- You can also contact the Home Office EU Settlement Resolution centre if you have questions about your EU Settlement Scheme application.
