Pilot scheme requires applicants to verify their ID using an Android device

EU staff working in higher education are currently able to apply for 'settled status' under a pilot of the UK government's EU Settlement Scheme. The University is keen to support staff wanting to apply for settled status, including a commitment to reimburse the scheme's £65 fee.

Android device required
A requirement of the pilot is that applicants must use the EU Exit: ID Document Check app for mobile phones to confirm their identity. Currently this app is only compatible with some Android devices, and we're aware that not all staff will have access to such a device.

Loan devices available from IT Services
With this in mind, the University has made available a number of compatible devices so that staff can access the app needed to apply under the scheme.

You can request a booking at https://uni-york.formstack.com/forms/eu_exit_id_document_check.

Once you have made your request you'll be contacted by a member of IT Services within 24 hours to arrange a suitable time to collect a device.
