The UK’s withdrawal from the EU has been delayed, and is now set to take place on 31 January 2020. An 11-month transition period is due to come into force after the UK formally leaves the EU on 31 January. This provides time for negotiations over the future relationship to take place while the UK remains in the EU's single market and customs union but will not have a seat in any of the decision-making institutions. Planning for all eventualities continues at the University, and we’ll continue to keep you fully updated.
