Brexit advice and support

Our University has a global ethos and we are proud to be a welcoming home to students and staff from across the world.

As you will know, the UK government and the European Union reached an agreement on a future relationship that took effect from 1 January 2021.

However, I want to assure you that Brexit does not change our global outlook: we will continue to collaborate with international partners to solve society’s greatest challenges and welcome and support staff and students from across Europe and around the world.

I know that you may have questions about how Brexit affects you, so I wanted to share the latest information available and to remind you of the support that the University is offering to staff and students. Our Brexit Coordination Group is continuing to meet and will update our Brexit FAQs with the latest information.
