Brexit: information and updates for staff

We are working with the Russell Group, Universities UK and other groups to address the challenges posed by Brexit. This includes seeking clarification and lobbying Whitehall on the most pressing concerns for our staff and students, including around mobility, fees, travel arrangements and access to research funding.

Latest news

14 January 2020

The House of Commons approved the Withdrawal Agreement Bill on Thursday 9 January. It is expected to be approved by the House of Lords next week and be given Royal Assent before 31 January 2020. It is now unlikely that the UK will leave the EU without a deal.

After 31 January, the UK will enter a transition period, currently due to end on 31 December 2020. During this period the UK will cease to be an EU member but will continue to follow its rules; it is anticipated that there will be few significant changes to our national operations and European relationships until the transition ends.

We are continuing to monitor the ongoing political developments and will provide any new information as it becomes available.
