EU Referendum Result Statement

As an international drama school, Rose Bruford College is proud of our tradition of welcoming students, staff and industry practitioners from across Europe and the rest of the world. The result of the Referendum does not change our position at all and we remain committed to working with European partners on exchange study and research opportunities.

What is the immediate impact?

Barring unilateral action from the UK Government, the 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 status of current and prospective EU students and staff.

What does it mean for you?

Current EU students
Your immigration status and associated fee status, as well as your access to the student loan book, have not changed as a result of the vote. This will remain the case until the Government decides otherwise. Please read the statement by the Student Loans Company below.
