The UK’s decision to withdraw from the EU is throwing up many issues for Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in the UK (and indeed their European counterparts). In this context, the UK Government recently released a “White Paper” detailing what it regarded as its preferred approach to the future relationship with the EU. Key aspects of this are exclusion from the Single Market, Customs Union and jurisdiction of the CJEU.

In contrast, the UK government’s current desire is for a customs “partnership” with the EU, access to the Single Market for goods and agriculture only, and a bespoke arrangement on financial services. That the EU appear likely to reject these demands only adds to the continued uncertainly as the time left to negotiate the UK’s departure ticks away in advance of March next year. There is now the real prospect of “no deal” given the UK Government’s seeming continued inability to understand fundamental EU negotiating principles (and its own internal divisions). Against this, some commentators have also questioned the “rigid” stance adopted by EU negotiators towards Brexit negotiations.
