Comment from Professor Iain Martin

Following the result of the EU referendum, Professor Iain Martin, Vice Chancellor of Anglia Ruskin University, has issued the following statement:

“The referendum result to leave the EU is one of the most significant decisions taken in this country over a lifetime. It is an outcome that that will provide Anglia Ruskin University, like all higher education institutions, with challenges. 

“It will take time for the full impact to become clear, but I want to reassure our current students and our staff, especially those from the EU, that at this point nothing has changed until the Government decides otherwise. 

“We greatly value the education and research links that we have established across Europe, which have brought great value to many individuals, our university and the community more widely and we will be doing our utmost to maintain these. 
“We will be working with our many colleagues and partners to ensure that people from around Europe can continue to come and study and work with us. We will also lobby to protect the funding that supports the diverse research and innovation that is taking place across the University.”
