Brexit: How universities can prepare for a no-deal scenario

EUA and Universities UK have published a common document in order to assist universities prepare for a no-deal Brexit.


The document points to the areas where universities can act and indicates for general actions that can be taken. However, the document cannot make up for technical guidance by the European Commission or individual governments.

Preparing for a no-deal Brexit should facilitate measures so that ties between EU and UK institutions will not be overly disrupted and so that individual institutions will be able to mitigate at least some of the consequences of a disorderly Brexit. However, it is crucial to be aware of the areas that may be affected, from fees and residence permits for students, to goods and services bought across the channel. In some cases, universities can prepare internally, and in other cases they will need to seek advice from their governments, the EU or independent legal experts.
