We appreciate that the EU Referendum decision has raised concerns amongst our EU and international staff. The diverse nature of the University is really important to us and we value our staff and their great contribution to our success.

For those who choose to continue their career in this country, we recognise that the rules surrounding immigration can be daunting and we want to help you understand how you can achieve this.

While it is unlikely that any changes will effect EU nationals immediately, you may want to think about applying for Permanent Residence or British Citizenship if you qualify and have not already done so.

With this in mind, we have set-up a number of presentations and guidance sessions to help you and your families consider your options and discuss your situation with a specialist immigration law firm.

The presentations will outline what immigration options are currently available in the UK, including residency and citizenship, and provide advice on how to make an application to the Home Office. Following the presentations, there will also be an opportunity for you to attend an individual consultation session with one of the immigration lawyers should you need any further advice and support.

Should you need any further legal support beyond these sessions then this would be at your own cost and we would encourage you to obtain professional advice from a regulated provider before determining what steps you may wish to take.
