Government Advice on Getting Ready for Brexit

Moving to the UK after Brexit - European Temporary Leave to Remain (ETLR)

Whatever lies ahead, our international community of staff and students will remain at the heart of our University.

Our University has always been a supportive, inclusive, caring and positive community. We warmly welcome those of different cultures, ethnicities and beliefs – indeed this very diversity is vital to our success, it is fundamental to our values and enriches life on campus. Now more than ever we will ensure our University is a place where diversity is welcomed, cherished and respected.

Our EU colleagues

In the context of ongoing uncertainty around the timescales and terms of the UK's exit from the European Union, we would advise you to refer to the Home Office information above regarding making an application to the EU Settlement Scheme.  If you are eligible for pre settled or settled status, this remains the most straightforward and cost effective way for you evidence your ongoing rights in the UK after the brexit date.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, please do share these with us so we can continue to review and improve our support to you.
