European Commission proposal on the conditions of admission of third-country national students, researchers, school pupils, volunteers, remunerated and unremunerated trainees and au pairs, initial appraisal of a European Commission Impact Assessment

The Students’ Directive sets out mandatory provisions for the admission of students who are third-country nationals, leaving also the possibility to Member States of applying the directive to school pupils, volunteers and unremunerated trainees. If they meet the conditions, students are entitled to a residence permit and enjoy certain rights with regard to employment or selfemployment to cover part of the cost of their studies and move between different Member States to pursue their studies. The Researchers’ Directive provides for a fast-track procedure for admitting researchers from third countries who have signed a hosting agreement with a research organisation approved by the Member State. The hosting agreement confirms the validity of the research project, the scientific skills of the researcher to complete it, and his or her possession of sufficient resources and health insurance. Researchers can stay in another Member State as part of their research project, and can teach in accordance with national legislation
