EU Referendum – Message from the Principal

Professor Dame Carol Black

Newnham College prides itself on welcoming the brightest women from around the world to study at Cambridge.

Despite the uncertainty generated by the result of the EU Referendum, the College’s global outlook will not change.

There will be no immediate impact on the College or on the provision of College support for Fellows, staff and students.

I am also able to confirm that undergraduate EU students who are already studying at Cambridge, who have an offer to study at Cambridge, or who apply in 2016 to start their studies in 2017, will continue to be charged the UK fee rate applicable at the time, provided this continues to be permitted by UK law.

Professor Sir Leszek Borysiewicz, Vice-Chancellor of The University of Cambridge, is already undertaking discussions with senior figures in Government and he has formed a University working group to consider staff, students, post-doctoral research, partnerships and nationality issues.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every student, Fellow, member of staff and alumnae for forming the powerful Newnham network which stretches around the globe.

Professor Dame Carol Black, Principal of Newnham College.
