    The EU referendum - a statement from the ARI
    In the light of the United Kingdom's referendum vote in favour of leaving the European Union, the Astrophysics Research Institute would like to make a clear statement of our continued support for our staff and students of all nationalities. Modern astrophysics is a global enterprise, and we rely heavily on our links with the astronomical community across the European Union and throughout the world. As the UK government negotiates with the EU in the coming years, we will strive to maintain and strengthen both these links and the diversity of our staff and student community, which greatly enrich our educational and research endeavours.
