Statement on the UK leaving the European Union

On 1 January 2021 the relationship between the UK and the European Union changed with the completion of the process of the UK leaving the European Union. With this ends the relative comfort of familiar rules and regulations provided under the transition agreement.

The UK government has reached an agreement with the European Union, and with a new deal comes new challenges. Whatever these changes mean for us as an institution we will absolutely continue to value our European staff and students and their place within our community.

We always look outwards to the world and we’ll continue to welcome students from across Europe despite Brexit. We value our place in the European cultural environment and believe knowledge, collaboration and scholarship are borderless.

Creative education is one of Britain’s great exports: it makes us entrepreneurial and resilient. We are passionate in our commitment to remain part of the global creative community and we are confident that our creativity will stand UAL and the UK in good stead.

Above all, we are committed to our students and staff wherever they come from.
