UK's exit from the European Union (EU)

Message from the Vice-Chancellor

There remains a great deal of uncertainty around the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union and the future shape of UK-EU relations.

We are monitoring the situation closely and working hard for the interests of our University. Senior staff members are in regular contact with Universities UK, the Russell Group and our partner institutions in Europe both to keep us informed of the latest developments and to lobby on the issues of most importance to us. These include: Erasmus+, EU research funding and immigration and work regimes which properly value and facilitate the contributions of our students and staff.

We are also supporting our staff and students through this period. We are 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.

A steering group is considering what the implications might be for our University of the UK leaving the EU, and staff and students are encouraged to continue to check these webpages for updates.

Best wishes,

Professor Stuart Corbridge

Vice-Chancellor and Warden
