Universities UK has today responded to the announcement by the Chancellor regarding EU funding guaranteed beyond the date the UK leaves the EU.

Alistair Jarvis, Deputy Chief Executive of Universities UK said: “This is encouraging news that provides much needed stability for British universities during the transition period as the UK exits the EU and provides an important signal to European researchers that they can continue to collaborate with their UK colleagues as they have before.”

“Horizon 2020 research funding supports British researchers to collaborate with international partners to deliver cutting-edge research that benefits the economy, society and British people.”

“We hope that the Government will now move quickly to address the uncertainty amongst EU students considering applying to British universities by confirming that those beginning courses before we exit the EU will be subject to current fees levels and financial support arrangements for the duration of their course.”
