Brexit Support for Staff

At the University of Birmingham, our staff are at the heart of what we are and do. We want to attract outstanding, inspirational, and talented people, support them to succeed, and celebrate their success, wherever they come from.

Our campus is truly a diverse and global place; we believe our diversity is a source of strength that underpins the exchange of ideas, innovation and debate. Post-Brexit, we will remain an ambitious, outward-looking, global university - both in relation to the EU and the wider world – and our international community of staff and students will continue to be welcomed, respected and valued.

We recognise that the ongoing uncertainty around the UK’s future relationship with the EU is unsettling. The University is committed to doing all that we can to support staff and students and to help them navigate their way through the Post-Brexit environment and the implications of the negotiations.

We continue to monitor the situation closely and will keep you updated on developments while making contingency plans to support staff and student mitigate the potential impact and minimise disruption to teaching and research.

We recommend that you continue to check these pages over the coming months. They will be updated with key information, developments and links that could support you. While we will try to keep this information as up-to-date as possible, due to the pace of change we cannot be held liable for any inaccuracies and would encourage you to also check official channels.
