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

Professor Sir Jim McDonald sent a message to all staff on 24 June 2016, entitled 'Statement on the Outcome of the European Union Referendum'.

Update for prospective Strathclyde EU citizen staff: 1 March 2018

The UK and EU are currently negotiating the terms of a 'transition' period, following withdrawal of the UK from the EU.  For EU citizens who are moving to the UK to work at Strathclyde during that period, the current proposals would mean that EU citizens and their family members will be able to move to the UK during the implementation period on the same basis as they do now.  The proposals include a registration period for those who choose to stay for more than three months.  The immigration rules which will apply after this period are yet to be confirmed.
