The granting of another extension to the Brexit deadline means that the UK will not leave the EU on 31 October. The University’s Brexit Working Group, led by Professor Jeremy Carrette, Dean for Europe, will continue to monitor the situation.
Professor Carrette said: ‘As Parliamentary discussions continue, we will ensure that the interests of students and staff remain at the forefront of any planning. While much of our immediate activity has been contingency planning in case of a no-deal scenario, we have also been looking to the longer-term impact of Brexit and continue to seek clarification on areas of pressing concern such as mobility, fees, travel arrangements and access to research funding.
‘Whatever the final outcome, Kent will remain an outward-looking university, proud of its European centres and its European collaborations. We will also continue to support staff and students during this uncertain time.’
The Brexit webpages will be kept updated with new information as soon as it is available.
