Jesus College is an international institution that embraces free academic exchange and welcomes the participation of academic and non-academic staff and students from across the globe. Involvement of EU staff and students and partnership with EU countries have for many years been a vital part of our academic life. The EU has helped foster research excellence and innovation. It has provided significant research funding that encourages collaboration across national borders, and gives our students an international outlook that equips them for the modern world. The College will do all in its power to help ensure that this rich and proud history of intellectual exchange and collaboration continues undiminished.

To our colleagues from fellow EU countries may I say how much we appreciate and value your contributions to every aspect of College and University life. This is an outstanding College in a great University. It is a community that values and cherishes all of its members. We are, and will always be, an open, tolerant and welcoming environment in which to study and work.
