Judgment EU Court on Study Directive

Students from third countries who meet the general and specific conditions exhaustively listed in Articles 6 and 7 of the Study Directive (Directive 2004/114) must be issued a residence permit for the purpose of study. The discretion available to the member state relates only to the conditions laid down in Articles 6 and 7 of the directive and, within that context, to the assessment of the relevant facts in order to determine whether those conditions are met and, in particular, whether there are grounds relating to the existence of a threat to public policy, public security or public health which preclude the admission of the third-country national. The European Court of Justice has ruled this in her Judgment of 10 September 2014 (C-491/13, Mohamed Ali Ben Alaya vs Germany).
