Imperial and the European Union
Since the Brexit vote, Imperial has intensified its European collaborations and engaged policymakers in Westminster and Brussels with a series of pragmatic proposals to ensure that world-class universities can thrive as Britain reworks its relationship with the EU.

Imperial’s European and international student numbers remain strong and on target. We are benefiting from a global ‘flight to quality’. Our doors remain open to talented international students and we are repeating that message around the world.
