European Referendum

Our statement on the EU Referendum.

Sebastian Munster, 1570

Since its inception, CREMS has promoted the study of the history, culture and thought of the Renaissance and early modern period across Europe and the wider world. Our research and teaching has illuminated how exchange with our European neighbours, and interaction with communities across the globe, shaped the United Kingdom as we know it today. We have welcomed numerous EU and International students, staff and visitors, and our community has been enriched by their participation.

We continue to welcome international scholars as members of our Centre and as students on our MA programme. Any prospective students with questions about how the EU Referendum will affect your application are warmly invited to write to the Centre Director. We also look forward to continuing to work closely with our European and international partners.

No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as any manner of thy friends or of thine own were; any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind.
John Donne, Devotions upon emergent occasions (1624)
