Brexit advice and support

I know this is an unsettling time for many members of our University community and you may have a number of questions and concerns. 

I want to reassure you that we have been carefully planning and taking action to mitigate the impact of different Brexit scenarios, including no-deal, and this important work will continue as a priority. We will also continue to work with other universities, students, higher education sector bodies, businesses and city and regional partners to further share the impact of Brexit on the work of our University, staff and students.

I have said this before, but I want to reiterate that our University is a truly international community with 29,000 students and 8,000 staff from more than 140 countries around the world. We will do all we can to safeguard our values and remain the welcoming home of global scholarship that we are so deeply proud to be. It is more important than ever that we support each other and are mindful of how different members of our community might be feeling during these uncertain times.

These pages will be kept up to date as more information becomes available. You can also contact us with any questions or concerns via

I will continue to keep you updated.
