Lancaster University has announced its first campus in mainland Europe, as fears grow that a no-deal Brexit could damage ties with partners in the European Union.
The university said on 7 February it would be opening the campus in Leipzig, Germany. The campus will offer Lancaster University degree programmes, including four BSc programmes, as well as a foundation programme operated by education provider Navitas. The first student intake is expected in September for the foundation programme.
The announcement comes at a time of increasing uncertainty for UK universities, which fear a no-deal Brexit could damage research links and the exchange of students and staff with EU countries.
