With continuing uncertainty around Brexit, the University and Joint Trade Unions have issued a statement in support of colleagues who are non-UK EU nationals.

With the next deadline for the UK leaving the EU only weeks away we, the University and the Joint Trade Unions, are writing to express our continuing support to colleagues who are non-UK EU nationals during these uncertain times.

As a university community, we value the diverse backgrounds of people who work here, and we remain absolutely committed to retaining and recruiting talented colleagues, regardless of nationality, post-Brexit.

You will find all the information that the University has provided to colleagues about Brexit here including information about how to obtain settled and pre-settled status in the UK and how to receive updates from the Home Office as the situation develops. Additionally, you might find the following government website useful to learn more about remaining in the UK.

We, the University and the Joint Trade Unions, want to do what we can to support you. The University is writing to people whom we know to be non-UK EU nationals frequently over the forthcoming weeks with any news that we think is important. We invite colleagues who have friends and family who are non-UK EU nationals to sign up to these emails also, so that they too can be well informed of significant developments and their implications.

We, the University and the joint trade unions will continue to work hard to support both non-UK EU nationals and other international employees and students and make sure that they not disadvantaged regardless of the exit deal that emerges in the coming weeks and months.
