Consequences of Brexit for staff members
The UK and EU have agreed a further delay to Brexit until 31 October 2019. However, when the UK does not take part in the European elections on 23 May 2019, they must leave the EU on 1 June 2019 without a deal.
What you can do yourself
There is still much uncertainty regarding Brexit day and the legal status of UK and EU citizens, as well as the future relations between the UK and the EU after Brexit. In our 'Brexit for (British) staff members' dossier you can read more about possible consequences and what measures you can take. And of course you can always contact the Service Centre International Staff (SCIS) for further information.
Impact of Brexit on universities
As an inherently Dutch institution, we do not expect great changes at Leiden University as a direct consequence of Brexit. We will continue to cooperate with British universities and citizens as we do with other renowned universities and citizens around the world. In a joint statement, Universities UK and the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU) reiterated this intent.
