Informing the public debate

Statement from MDX Policy and External Affairs office  

Middlesex University works closely with local, London and national decision makers to influence policy making. Since the EU referendum result in 2016, the University has worked to shape the terms of the UK’s exit from the EU.

It has shared its views and evidence on the impact of Brexit with the Government’s Migration Advisory Committee, Parliament, the Higher Education Commission, the Greater London Authority and Barnet Council.

It has also worked closely with member organisations such as Universities UK, the Confederation of British Industry, Million Plus, London Higher and London First to support their Brexit influencing activity.

Key policy priorities are:

  • Obtaining guarantees and certainty on the rights and status of EU citizens
  • Continuing participation for the UK in the EU’s research and mobility programmes
  • Confirmation of the future funding status of EU students

The University continues to work to understand and mitigate the risks to Middlesex as the discussions on our withdrawal and future relationship with the EU continue.
