Guidance on transnational education regulation in the EU post-Brexit

While the UK has been granted a Brexit extension, the possibility that the UK will leave the EU without a deal cannot be discounted. This would have a significant impact on the way UK universities operate within the EU. 

Universities UK International with Farrer & Co has created guidance on transnational education regulation in nine of the top 10 EU destinations for UK TNE activity: Greece, Ireland, Cyprus, Germany, Spain, Malta, Romania, Austria, and Italy.

This note sets out points of guidance for UK universities who engage in higher education transnational education (“TNE”) in other EU territories. It aims to provide practical guidance in respect of the likely issues arising from the UK leaving the EU without a negotiated agreement (no-deal Brexit), to support UK universities with contingency planning in respect of EU TNE.
