Students will be aware that the UK has taken the decision to leave the EU. Formal action necessary to start the leave process has yet to be taken and therefore no changes have currently been made to the UK's immigration rules. It is expected that the process to leave the EU will take at least two years. All international and EU students will be regularly updated as and when changes affecting their immigration status become known. Find out more on our EU advice pages.
The University recognises that this situation may be unsettling for students. Therefore, if you have any concerns about your immigration status as a result of the UK's exit from the EU, please contact the Student Support Hub, either in person in Market Square or phone +44 (0)1904 324140 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Immigration Advice Service is here to answer any questions you may have about the immigration process. We offer appointments during term-time.
