Brexit Information for Staff

Although the UK will be withdrawing from the EU on 29 March 2019, there is currently no change to the status of EU/EEA/Swiss nationals living and working in the UK.


You can find more information about the rights that have been agreed for EU citizens and their families currently living in the UK on the UK Government website.

European Research Council / Horizon 2020 funding

There is no immediate impact on funding and we encourage UAL staff to continue to apply for EU funding where appropriate.

Chancellor Phillip Hammond has confirmed that structural and investment funds projects signed before the Autumn Statement and Horizon research funding granted before we leave the EU will be guaranteed by the Treasury after we leave. There is more information about EU funding on the Gov UK website.

Erasmus+ and staff mobility

There is no immediate change to the Erasmus+ programme.

UAL staff can continue to develop their professional and personal skills as part of Erasmus+ programme and UAL continues to welcome incoming staff members from those countries that participate in the Erasmus+ programme. While we cannot predict the outcome of Article 50 negotiations and the impact it will have on Erasmus+ funding, it should be noted that countries outside the EU/EEA (such as Turkey, Switzerland and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia) participate in the Erasmus+ programme.
