Brexit advice and support

As you will be aware, the UK left the European Union on Friday 31 January 2020

Firstly, I want to reassure you that nothing will change in the immediate future. As the Withdrawal Agreement has been ratified by both the UK and EU Parliaments, we will now enter a transition period, which will last until 31 December 2020. During this time, the UK will not be an EU member state, but will continue to follow EU rules while further negotiations take place about our future relationship.

Over the coming months, our University Brexit Coordination Group will continue to meet and we will update our Brexit FAQs with the latest information and advice about a range of topics, including travel, research and student and staff mobility.

As I have said before, Brexit will not affect our University's global outlook. We are proud to be home to students and staff from more than 150 countries who collaborate across borders to address the most pressing challenges facing society today. We will maintain global partnerships for research, teaching and student exchanges and are committed to ensuring the UK remains a welcoming home of global scholarship.
