EU Referendum

The EU referendum held on 23 June 2016 resulted in a vote for the UK to leave the European Union.  The UK government is now preparing to engage in a process of negotiating the terms of the UK’s exit from the European Union.  Until such time as this process has been completed, the status of EU students studying and living in the UK will remain unchanged.  Ulster University’s global outlook and ambition remains strong and our European colleagues, students and partnerships are important to us.

To current and prospective EU students

The immigration status of current and prospective EU students remains unchanged until the UK completes the process to leave the European Union. Northern Ireland’s Department for the Economy has issued a statement about student finance for EU students currently studying in Northern Ireland:

To all students studying on Erasmus+

UK universities will continue to participate in EU programmes such as Erasmus+ until such time as the UK formally leaves the EU.  EU students intending to study at Ulster University and Ulster students intending to study or undertake work placement in Europe via the Erasmus+ programme in 2016 and 2017 will be able to do so.  Full access to Erasmus+ grants, for at least as long as the UK remains a member of the EU, will remain in place too.  Please refer to the latest statement issued about the Erasmus+ UK programme:
