EU Hub

Welcome to our EU Hub – the place to find the latest updates, information and guidance on the UK leaving the EU single market and customs union on 31 December 2020

Royal Holloway, University of London is one of the UK’s most international universities. We value different perspectives and are strengthened by diversity. While there is political uncertainty as discussions around Brexit continue, we, as a College community, are more certain of the principles that we value and therefore how important it is that we remain a diverse, international and multi-cultural institution.  

As members of Universities UK (UUK), we will work hard to seek the best outcome for you and our students, and in doing so, protect the powerful contribution EU staff and students make to higher education in the UK.

Preparing for the UK’s exit from the EU

The UK left the European Union on 31 January 2020 and there’s now a transition period until 31 December 2020, to allow for relevant legislation to be put in place. At the College work is currently underway, with a working group meeting every two weeks to ensure that the key risk areas across the College are adequately prepared. Regular communications detailing any changes/actions colleagues need to take, will be included in upcoming staff newsletters and on these pages.

Government guidance for higher education providers during the transition period and after 1 January 2021, can be found here.
