To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what the evidential basis is for the Government's conclusion that the UK will automatically fall out of the European Universities Institute Convention upon the UK’s exit from the EU.

The UK’s EU membership is inextricably linked to its current membership of the European University Institute Convention (EUIC). As a result of EU Exit, the UK will no longer be an EU member state and so the UK’s membership of the EUIC will automatically cease on exit day. However, the UK will continue to apply the terms of the EUIC for the duration of the Implementation Period in a ‘deal’ scenario.
