*UPDATE 6 January 2021* An agreement on the future relationship between the UK and the EU has been reached. The new trade agreement is called the Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA) and is being implemented from 1 January 2021. The Q&As below have been updated to reflect the new arrangements.
Implications of the UK's exit from the European Union
The United Kingdom and the European Union have concluded a Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA) following the UK’s departure from the EU and end of the transition period. The TCA, agreed on 24 December 2020, came into force on 1 January 2021.
The Agreement establishes a framework for the future UK-EU relationship and provides for new arrangements on trade, transport and the regulation of goods and services, among others. It confirms that UK institutions will be eligible to participate in the EU’s Horizon Europe, Euratom Research and Training, and Copernicus programmes.
The University has made extensive preparations to mitigate the impact of the UK’s exit from the EU on our students, staff and day-to-day operations. Colleagues in the Immigration Team, Research Services, Finance Division and Compliance are available to offer support and guidance as we work to adapt to these changes.
The University of Oxford is, and intends to remain, a thriving, cosmopolitan community of scholars and students united in our commitment to education and research. The departure from the EU will not change this; our staff and students from all across the world are as warmly welcome as ever.
