Kent and Brexit
The 31 January 2020 will see the UK leaving the European Union.
As a University community, we will continue to strive for international co-operation in Europe and around the globe for the enhancement of knowledge and the enrichment of the student experience. We are proud of our European links and our internationally diverse student and staff community from Europe and around the world.
The University’s Brexit Working Group, led by Professor Jeremy Carrette, Dean for Europe, will continue to monitor the situation and update students and colleagues as the negotiations continue. Where we can, we will provide information on settled status, travel and other issues on these pages as well as signposting to useful external information.
"It’s important to lift ourselves from the short-term horizon. Europe is not the European Union.
We are still the UK’s European university. Europe is part of our DNA and we are determined to remain outward looking. We are proud of our European centres in Brussels, Paris, Rome and Athens.
Our education and research reflects the expertise and knowledge of our European experts, and we embrace our collaborations with our European partners. That will not change."
Professor Karen Cox, Vice-Chancellor and President and Professor Jeremy Carrette, Dean for Europe
