Impact of Brexit on prospective staff and students from the UK

If you are considering coming to the UvA to study or work, you may be wondering how Brexit will affect your plans.

Prospective staff from the UK

If you are planning to come and work at the UvA after Brexit day, you will be treated as a third-country national. The same conditions will apply as those for people from other non-member states (such as American citizens who wish to stay and work at a university in the Netherlands). The UvA would need a permit to employ you.

Prospective students from the UK

From 2020-2021 onward, the situation depends on the Brexit deal. If there is no deal specifying otherwise, and you were not already living and registered in the Netherlands on Brexit day, you will be considered a third-country national and charged the non-EEA tuition fee. For most programmes, our non-EEA rate is not very different from tuition fees at English and Welsh universities, but it is much higher than current fees in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
