Brexit update 29.03.17

The University of Birmingham continues to nurture and value our European partnerships, collaborations and the contributions of our EU students and staff. The University is committed to doing all that we can to support staff and students and to help them navigate their way through the implications of the forthcoming Brexit negotiations.

Our university community welcomes international students and staff from more than 150 countries and, post-Brexit, and we will remain an ambitious, outward-looking, global university - both in relation to the EU and the wider world. 

Nationally the University of Birmingham is working with the Russell Group, Universities UK and other organisations to influence Government and put forward the strongest possible case for universities. We are calling for the UK’s continued engagement in EU research and innovation programmes, as well as sustained academic and student mobility including access to the EU programmes which support this.

Above all, the Higher Education sector is clear about the urgent priority that Government needs to give to guaranteeing the residency and work rights of EU citizens and their dependants currently working in the UK. While we are members of the EU, we also remain strongly committed to continuing to apply to Horizon 2020, Erasmus + and other EU funding programmes.
