If you are a current student, offer holder or prospective applicant from a European Union (EU) country, you may have some concerns about the UK's decision to withdraw from the European Union (widely known as "Brexit"), and what that will mean for you.
All Nottingham students are global citizens, contributing to and benefiting from a vibrant, multicultural and inclusive community. We believe student mobility is an important part of being a student here.
We will protect this experience, and the hugely important role played by students from all European countries in making Nottingham Britain's Global University.
We welcome students from every country, and will continue to do so: our vibrant and diverse student body is one of the University's greatest strengths at our campuses in the UK, China and Malaysia. European students beginning their studies in the UK in 2017 and 2018 can be reassured the University will continue to treat their status as EU students throughout their degree course for fee purposes. We are the leading university in the UK for Erasmus students and continue to focus on this valuable experience for our students, with Erasmus funding agreed for 2017.
All students – current and future – can be assured that Nottingham remains an ambitious global university, with great staff, offering an unforgettable student experience and producing highly sought-after graduates.
Our Vice-Chancellor's EU Referendum message
I am sure you are wondering what Brexit will mean for us personally and professionally. The answer is that nothing will change immediately.
We value our highly diverse staff and student body at Nottingham, and what that does for our community. Unless the UK Government decides to take unilateral action, this vote does not mean there will be any immediate material change to the UK’s participation in EU programmes such as Horizon 2020 and Erasmus+, nor to the immigration status of current and prospective EU students and staff.
Professor Sir David Greenaway, Vice-Chancellor
Our commitment to remain a truly global university
UK universities are among the country's greatest assets, providing world-class teaching and research that is valued globally. It is vital that the UK continues to welcome international students, staff and researchers, who contribute so much to our universities, our economy and our society.
At Nottingham we take a global approach to everything that we do: welcoming students from around the world, and investing in world-leading research and academic collaboration. We are committed to maintaining our diverse international community of scholars and our truly global approach to higher education.
Professor Nicholas Miles, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Global Engagement
