The European Parliament decided to offer more freedom to the young people from outside the EU, including the Republic of Moldova, who want to study or work as researchers in EU member states. By a directive approved recently by the European Parliament, the MEPs aim to attract highly-qualified persons to Europe, IPN reports, quoting the portal erasmusplus.md.
The changes made by the legislature in Strasbourg provide that during the period of mobility, the students and researchers will be able to work for at least 15 hours a week. When they complete their studies and research, the foreign students will be able to remain in an EU member state to find a job or to start a business. The family members will be able to accompany the researchers who work in the EU and will also be allowed to work.
The new rules will take effect after the national legislation of each EU member state is adjusted and do not apply to Denmark, Ireland and the UK. The authorities of the EU member states have two years to make the necessary changes. The new directive reviews the previous legislation that came into force in 2004. This does not allow the non-EU students and researchers to work.
