Just one day after the EU Referendum, University Principal Ian Diamond issued this message to the University community, including staff, students and future students alike. In his words:
We are an institution with a global outlook and reach. I can assure everyone that throughout the transition period that will now follow we will work with Government and stakeholders across the UK and European higher education sectors to ensure we make sure our voice is heard in the discussions that will help protect our many links with the EU.
I wish to take this opportunity to emphasise how highly our EU students and colleagues are valued and have personally written to all those affected to assure them of our commitment to them as members of the University of Aberdeen family, now and going forward.
The university has also set up an email address for any queries or concerns relating to Brexit, should staff or students have questions of how the vote might directly impact them. A number of resources can be found on the University website, including this FAQ for EU members of staff.
