Brexit: Information for Staff

All-Staff email providing information to staff in relation to Brexit.

Dear Colleague

As we approach the scheduled date of the UK’s departure from the EU on 29 March 2019, there remains a significant level of uncertainty around the UK’s exit and the future shape of UK-EU relations. 

I know that this is an unsettling time for many of you and you are likely to have many questions about what happens now and what this means for you. As a University, I want to assure you that we will work to support you.

A dedicated website has been established to provide information and support to both staff and students and to help keep you up to date with the latest developments in the Brexit negotiations. Information provided on the website includes:

Staff and students are encouraged to check these webpages regularly for updates.

Our Brexit Operating Working Group, chaired by the Registrar and Chief Operating Officer, continues its work on the challenges and implications around Brexit and we are monitoring developments closely. 

Queen’s is a globally connected and networked University with strategic partnerships across the world, helping us to expand our impact on wider society locally, nationally and globally. 

We welcome staff and students from the EU and across the globe and our international students and staff are an intrinsic and valued part of our academic life, university community and wider society here in Belfast and Northern Ireland. This will continue to be the case.

Best Wishes, 

Professor Ian Greer 
President and Vice-Chancellor
