What does leaving the EU mean for your work or study at Ulster University?

The UK will leave the EU on 31st December 2020.  Currently the UK is in a transition period as negotiations continue between the UK Government and EU with the aim of agreeing a deal.  During this period, the potential implications of Brexit on the University remains, and the continued lack of clarity will be of concern to staff and students.

Ulster University’s Brexit Readiness Working Group (BRWG) is currently working through the implications of the UK's withdrawal from the European Union (EU), including the potential impacts on staff and student mobility, workplace rights, freedom of movement within the Common Travel Area, Horizon 2020, Erasmus+ and continued access to Research facilities, funding and grants.

The University is also reviewing and, where relevant, implementing the advice provided by the UK Government and national representative bodies including Universities UK and Universities Human Resources (UHR).

We also continue to liaise with the Department for the Economy and the UK Government to seek further clarity for our institution our staff, students and EU partners.

Our primary consideration during this period is our staff and students, and in this time of uncertainty, we have developed these web pages to answer key questions on Brexit and ongoing updates.  If you have any further queries not covered on the webpages or wish to highlight any issues please email Brexit@ulster.ac.uk.

Please check this page regularly for updated information and links as and when more clarity around Brexit is available.
