The UKCBC is very proud of the innovations, ideas and inspiration that come from the European members of the UKCBC’s global community. We recognise that there is a great deal of uncertainty around the decision to leave the European Union.
As David Cameron stated, there will be no immediate changes following the EU Referendum, including in the circumstances of British citizens living in the EU, and European citizens living here.
For students, visitors, businesses and entrepreneurs who are already in the UK or who wish to come here, there will be no immediate changes to visa policies.
Important points for EU nationals studying in England to consider:
- “EU and international students make an important contribution to our world-class universities, and our European neighbours are among some of our closest research partners” – Jo Johnson, Universities and Science Minister.
- EU students who are eligible under current rules to receive loans and grants from the Student Loans Company will continue to do so for courses they are currently enrolled on or about to start this coming year. EU students will continue to receive funding for the duration of their courses. For more information, click here.
- The SLC have provided detailed finance information, which you can see here.
The UKCBC would like to stress that, even though the result is in favour of leaving the European Union, there is no immediate change to the UK’s Higher Education, nor to the immigration status of current and prospective EU students.
We will continue to work as normal but if you have any questions, please contact your respective campus managers for further information. Additionally, you can write to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 8518 4994.
Please be assured of our commitment and continued support to you.
