Weekend workshops in Brighton are available to help you to become a British Citizen by passing the ‘Life in the UK’ test and to gain your Residence Card.
The ‘residence card’ means you have permission to stay in the UK and a stepping stone for UK citizenship – we can help!
Get your permission to stay in the UK in place before Britain leaves the European Union. As Britain goes for Brexit (British Exit from the EU), then you want your own ‘Brentrance’ and we can help.
IYE International and historian Kevin Newman, Life In The UK (LITUK) tutor, examiner and author of a range of history books, have created an amazing ‘Living in the UK’ course that enables you to take the test with ease. The test features mostly history and citizenship studies, two topics Kevin has taught widely to people of all ages. Kevin has experience of helping a number of candidates through the test.
The workshop will give you the chance to learn the course content and how best to tackle the questions in the test. You will also find you understand far more about living in the UK.
