If you are an EU citizen and a University student you may have some questions about what Brexit could mean for you. 

So what did the events of last week mean for Brexit?

Prime Minister Boris Johnson reached a new deal with the EU which needed to be approved by Parliament.  The outcome of Saturday’s Parliamentary vote means that the new deal was not passed, with MPs adopting an amendment requiring the Prime Minister to ask for a further extension to the UK’s planned departure from the EU on 31 October 2019.

We now must wait to see if the Prime Minister manages to secure a second attempt to vote on the new deal, and if the EU agree to a further extension.
