Statement from the vice-chancellor

The United Kingdom left the European Union (EU) single market and customs union at the end of the Brexit transition period on 31 December 2020. This means that there will be new rules for citizens and businesses in the UK.

The Brexit Transition website provides up to date information to help UK businesses and citizens get ready for the end of the Brexit transition, including advice relating to travelling to the EU, living and working in the EU and staying in the UK if you are an EU citizen.

Alongside our partners, Queen's will play a vital role in meeting the challenges and embracing the opportunities of the coming years and will make the case for research and education collaboration with our European partners while also building strong new international partnerships.

At Queen’s, we continue to work on the challenges and implications around Brexit, including the Protocol on Northern Ireland. I want to assure you that we will work to support you and to keep you informed of developments.

As a University, we look forward to a period of greater stability and are committed to working with the Northern Ireland Assembly and Executive and the UK and Irish Governments to help create a dynamic economy, stronger communities and a positive future for Northern Ireland and the UK through the research and education we deliver.

All staff and students are encouraged to regularly check this dedicated Brexit Advice website, through which we will help keep you up to date with the latest developments.
