EU referendum - message to current and future staff

Strathclyde is well-recognised for its global outlook and the diverse, international make up of our student and staff communities.

Staff will be aware of the outcome of the referendum and the UK's decision to leave the EU. The formal consequence of this decision will be subject to a process of negotiation over the coming years.

Throughout the transition, our focus will be on ensuring we continue to offer an environment that is international in outlook, well-funded, and an attractive destination for talented staff from across Europe and beyond.

All of our staff are very important to us and we look forward to welcoming many more from across the globe in the future.

We are working with the Scottish Government to protect the benefits of EU membership.


Message from Professor Sir Jim McDonald, Principal and Vice-Chancellor

A full copy of the presentation slides have been made available to all attendees, entitled 'Brexit Implications for EEA Nationals'.
