The University and Europe


Information for staff, family members and job applicants who are EU citizens.

Edinburgh is a truly global university, so at this time it’s especially important that we emphasise our ongoing commitment to international diversity and a community in which staff and students continue to feel valued and welcome.

Amid the continued uncertainty surrounding the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, we understand our staff – whether from the UK, the EU or outside the EU – will have questions. 

It is crucial that you feel informed and supported throughout what many will find an unsettling period. Information for staff, family members and job applicants is available below, which answers many of the concerns that have already been raised around living and working in the UK post-Brexit, travel and visas, Erasmus+, and insurance.
