EU Hub

Welcome to our EU Hub - the place to find the latest updates, information and guidance following the EU referendum outcome.

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.

On this EU Hub, you will find the latest updates from our College and others, including UUK.

If you have any questions or have suggestions for improvement, please contact the Internal Communications team.

HR advice for you and eu colleagues

If you are a member of staff from the EU, your immigration status has not changed as a result of the EU referendum outcome. One of the most immediate priorities that Universities UK (UUK) is urging Government to address is the confirmation of rights to reside and work in the UK post-exit for EU nationals that are currently working in the university sector and their dependents. Find out more in this section.


latest guidance for students

The immigration status and associated fee status, as well as access to the student loan book, have not changed for current EU or Erasmus+ programme students as a result of the vote. Looking ahead, the UK Government has announced that EU students starting an undergraduate or postgraduate taught degree at Royal Holloway in 2017/18 or 2018/19 will pay the same level of fee as a UK student, and have access to student loans for their tuition fees, if eligible, for the duration of their degree.


european research funding updates

In August 2016, the Treasury confirmed in a statement that if UK universities bid directly on a competitive basis for Horizon 2020 funding while we are still a member of the EU, it will underwrite the payment of Horizon 2020 awards when projects continue beyond the UK’s departure from the EU.
