Brexit

The UK’s departure from the EU will inevitably have an impact on European higher education and research. That’s why EUA has closely followed the Brexit debate since the very beginning, dedicating a team of experts to advocacy activities on behalf of its members. The Association is working towards retaining the strong links between universities in the UK and the rest of Europe. It is cooperating closely with its member Universities UK to ensure that British universities will remain an essential part of the European family of universities, which extends beyond EU borders.

In this effort, EUA is using its expertise in higher education and research policy to follow and influence Brexit’s potential impact on the sector. In particular, it is closely monitoring how Brexit will impact UK participation in EU research programmes, like Horizon Europe, as well as Erasmus+. The Association has also published positions and factsheets that can be seen below. Notably, it has routinely updated its “Brexit & Universities FAQ” to provide the sector with answers based on the latest information on the situation.

EUA will continue to follow the Brexit negotiations, inform its members and reinforce contacts at the European level to advocate for continued close cooperation between the EU and the UK in higher education and research after Brexit.
