The Government has guaranteed funds for EU projects agreed up until the point at which the UK leaves the EU. This includes projects funded by Horizon 2020 and the European Structural and Investment Funds.
Looking ahead, the terms of the UK’s exit from the EU will, though, impact how and whether the University will be able to access EU funding for research and student mobility, and our ability to recruit current levels of EU students and staff.
As a university community which welcomes international students and staff from more than 150 countries we will, and indeed already are, planning together for the changes that will be ahead to ensure we remain an ambitious, outward-looking, global university. We have senior level representation on the Brexit working groups that have been set up by Universities UK and the Russell Group. We are working to make a strong case to Government on these matters and are closely monitoring Brexit developments and their implications for the University.
