On 29 March 2017, the UK Prime Minister, Theresa May, triggered Article 50 of the Treaty of Lisbon, following the UK’s decision in last summer’s EU Referendum to leave the European Union (EU).
I appreciate that today’s announcement, and the outcome of the referendum, create considerable uncertainty and a cause of genuine concern for our students and colleagues in terms of what the future might hold.
In uncertain times, we seek out the strong and stable.
Royal Holloway was founded over 150 years ago. I am proud to be able to say that today we are one of the UK’s most international universities and our principles are clear. We value different perspectives. We are strengthened by our diversity. Our commitment to excellence and inclusivity is unwavering.
Ours is a close knit community and we will continue to welcome students and colleagues from all over the world to our campus. Our ability to inspire one another, and determination to go forward with purpose will ensure that together we will succeed in changing times.
Professor Paul Layzell, Principal, Royal Holloway, University of London
