Vice-Chancellor announces further support for international staff

February 7th, 2018

The Vice-Chancellor has announced further support for international staff though the work of the University’s EU taskforce.

International staff (EU and non-EU) can now access interest-free loans to help with expenses related to immigration and applying for British citizenship, for themselves and their immediate family.

Professor Shearer West said: “Our international staff do not just make an integral contribution to the University of Nottingham, they define our very identity as one of the UK’s most globally-minded institutions. We are determined that this will not change during or after the UK leaves the European Union. As such, I am pleased to announce the University will create a new scheme to give all our international staff access to interest-free loans to cover the cost of current and future migration procedures”.

The ‘Support with Immigration Expenses’ application form can be found here.

‘Brexit Briefing’ workshops are also available to provide guidance and information to EU staff. Led by Mills and Reeve LLP, these workshops will explore immigration-related matters, such as applications for permanent residence and British citizenship, looking at some common issues that affect university staff – such as the impact of regular travel abroad. They will also look at the broader context of Brexit and issues facing colleagues from the EU.

Will the University sponsor citizenship applications for Academic staff? After all, non-UK Academics in permanent posts at Nottingham are fairly few in number but essential to University business.
