City & Guilds of London Art School: Statement following the EU referendum

We are a community of artists, crafts practitioners and designers, enriched by the cultural diversity, creativity, knowledge and skills of our academic and other staff and students.  Working with individuals from around the world, including from many EU nations, we value the exchange of ideas and the exploration of contemporary and historical approaches to creative practice from local, European and global perspectives.

Following the result of the UK Referendum of 23 June 2016 we can confirm that the status of our current and prospective students and staff who are EU citizens is unchanged. We will engage with our networks through our membership of Study UK and our partner institutions to ensure that we can continue to work with individuals from across Europe as well as further afield, supporting and championing their talent, insight, curiosity and commitment for our subjects.

The Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS) released a statement from Jo Johnson MP, Minister of State for Universities and Science, on 28 June, confirming that:

  • EU students who are eligible under current rules to receive loans and grants from the Student Loans Company will continue to do so for courses they are currently enrolled on or about to start this coming academic year.
