Principal's statement on EU referendum result

RGU Principal Professor Ferdinand von Prondzynski.Professor Ferdinand von Prondzynski, Principal of Robert Gordon University, said: “Following the result of the referendum for the UK to leave the European Union it is unclear what the effect will be on universities across the country and we will need to learn more as details become available, and ask relevant questions of government. There are of course special political dimensions in Scotland.

“For now the UK is still a member of the European Union and all of the international agreements around higher education, including tuition fees and overseas exchanges, remain in place, so there is no significant change in our circumstances. The position affecting all those – students and staff – who are currently in Scotland and in our universities, or who are planning to come this autumn, will not change.

“It is very important to stress to EU staff, students and applicants that all are welcome in RGU and we remain committed to our international partnerships within the European Union and around the world.

"We will continue to support our students to contribute to the global economy, and also lead the way in ground-breaking industry research. We will lobby hard to ensure that all these conditions and benefits remain secure into the future.”
