Imperial and the European Union
Our approach to Brexit
Following the EU referendum result, there is no immediate change for our students, staff, research partnerships or funding.
Imperial is taking a pragmatic and proactive approach to Brexit. We are working to support our staff and students, and we are proposing policy solutions that will help the UK to secure its lead in education, research and innovation.
We are defending our international values, and making it clear that Imperial is open. We look forward to continued strong ties with Europe and the world over the coming years.
