The department is considering all aspects of how exiting the EU might affect further and higher education. This includes consideration of participation in EU-funded programmes, future arrangements for migration and for access to student finance support. We are committed to ensuring the country is prepared for every eventuality.
My officials also regularly engage with sector stakeholders on a range of issues, including leaving the EU and the Transition Period.
