About Durham University

Britain's exit from the European Union (EU)

The University’s steering group is considering what the implications might be for Durham University once Britain leaves the European Union (EU). Students, staff and stakeholders are encouraged to continue to check this webpage for updates.

Message from the Vice-Chancellor

As Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty is triggered, the process of negotiations around Britain’s departure from the European Union will now begin.

At Durham University we will continue to lobby through Universities UK and the Russell Group for the rights of EU citizens to remain in the UK and for continuing access to EU research funding. We will also continue to make the case for immigration and work regimes which properly value and facilitate the contributions of international staff and students.

We are also supporting our staff and students through this period of negotiation. Durham University is immensely proud of the contributions of all of our staff members and students who come from diverse nationalities and cultural backgrounds. We flourish because we are an inclusive and outward looking community.

Staff, students and other stakeholders are encouraged to check our dedicated Brexit microsite for further information – this will be updated regularly.

Best wishes,

Professor Stuart Corbridge

Vice-Chancellor and Warden
