Results of the European Union (EU) referendum

Friday 24 June 2016

A vote to leave the European Union does not mean there will be any immediate material change to the UK university sector’s participation in EU programmes such as Horizon 2020 and Erasmus+ nor to the immigration and funding status of current and prospective EU students and colleagues.

All existing research project grants and contracts will be honoured, unless or until advised otherwise.

All existing Erasmus funding for students will continue while we remain a member of the EU and potentially for an extended period. 

Universities UK – our representative body - has prepared a useful statement and guidance note which addresses many of the questions and concerns you may rightly have which you can access on here.
