About Durham University

The UK’s exit from the European Union (EU)

Durham University has established a steering group to consider the implications that leaving the European Union may have for the institution. Students, staff and stakeholders are encouraged to continue to check this webpage for updates.

Message from the Vice-Chancellor

Further to the outcome of the EU Referendum, a steering group has been established at Durham University to lead on scenario planning for what lies ahead.

In addition, Durham University will be joining with other Russell Group and Universities UK members to press the government for early reassurances about the rights of EU nationals to work and study in the UK.

It is important to note that no significant changes will take place within the next two years, during which time EU laws will continue to apply in the UK. Full details of the UK’s post-Brexit arrangements with the EU and the rest of the world will emerge through this period and beyond.

While these are clearly matters for the government to decide, please be assured that Durham University will play a full part in pressing for future arrangements that best support its continuing ambitions to be a leading world and European University. We flourish because we are an inclusive and outward looking community. I and all University Executive Committee members are immensely proud of the contributions of all of our staff members and students.

We will keep this webpage updated with the latest developments for staff, students and stakeholders.
