About Durham University

UK's exit from the European Union (EU)

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

Message from the Vice-Chancellor

The United Kingdom has voted to leave the European Union and the UK government is currently in negotiations over the terms of the departure.

While the UK and the EU have provisionally agreed on the rights of EU citizens living in the UK, at Durham University we will continue to lobby through Universities UK and the Russell Group on this issue and also 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.

Best wishes,

Professor Stuart Corbridge

Vice-Chancellor and Warden
