Brexit advice website updated

The University’s Brexit website has been revised and relaunched.

The website provides advice for Loughborough’s staff, researchers, and current and prospective students on the potential impact of Brexit on their work or study. It also gives an overview of the latest developments and links to further sources of information.

In his introduction, the Vice-Chancellor says: “One of the University’s ambitions is to have a distinctive international reputation for excellence and we therefore recognise that international staff and students play an absolutely vital role in the ongoing and future success of the institution. We recognise that the Brexit discussions and the uncertainty around them is likely to be a cause for concern anyone affected.

“Whilst we are not clear about the exact implications following Brexit, I can be very clear that the University is absolutely committed to supporting those affected, whether they are studying or working here.”

The site will be updated as and when more information becomes available.
