Brexit Updates

We are proud of our relationships with the European Union and partner institutions. More now than ever, we firmly believe that the international reach of the College offers a wonderful opportunity to experience the richness of cultural integration and exchange, the widening of horizons and cooperation, for tolerance and understanding and the the celebration of difference. 

Brexit is an ever changing subject, so we have created this page to provide prospective students, students and staff with the relevant links to find the latest information. 

Advice for Current and Prospective Students

The Office for Students provides regular updates about how Brexit may affect your studies. Follow the links below for the latest updates and to sign up to their email alerts. 

Universities UK and gov.uk also post regular updates. 

If you are an EU citizen from another EU country apart from Britain or Ireland and you are planning  on staying in the UK after 2020, please read details here about the EU settlement scheme and how to apply for settled status.

Erasmus Updates

The College continues to work with our international partners and will seek to maintain our close links beyond Brexit.

The UK Government has guaranteed to underwrite funding for current Erasmus activity and the College will therefore continue to offer Erasmus+ activities for staff and students during 2019-20 within available funding.

In terms of 2019 applications:

  • For 2019 deadlines that have already passed, the process of assessment, selection and contracting for 2019 applications is ongoing.
     
  • For remaining 2019 deadlines, organisations intending to submit applications for funding should continue to apply as planned. This includes applications submitted to the UK National Agency for decentralised Key Actions, as well as those submitted to the European Commission’s Executive Agency for centralised Actions. 

The Erasmus+ UK National Agency is working closely with the Department for Education on how a no-deal scenario would affect Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps (ESC).

Advice for Staff

The government provides regular updates on its website for UK citizens living and working in the EU as well as EU citizens staying in the UK.
