The University and Europe

Published: 27 June 2016

Following the recent EU referendum, the University of Southampton has released a statement regarding the result and what it means for both staff and students.

The statement reads:

'We recognise that this could be an anxious period for many people either considering or currently studying and working at the University of Southampton. Until there is further clarity the University would like to ensure you that we are doing our best to understand the issues and reduce the impact where possible. We are working closely with Universities UK which has made the following statement:

"Barring unilateral action from the UK Government, we are advised that 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."
