||<p>The Government has made clear that it values international exchange and collaboration.
Officials in the Department for Exiting the EU and the Department for Education have
met with the EUI to hold discussions to explore options to provide continuity and
ensure UK students at the EUI can complete their studies.</p><p>Should Parliament
approve the deal the Prime Minister has negotiated with the EU, the UK will continue
to apply the terms of the EUI Convention for the duration of the implementation period.
The UK’s rights and obligations under the Convention would continue during that period,
in accordance with the Withdrawal Agreement. The Political Declaration sets out that
we will establish general principles, terms and conditions for UK participation in
EU programmes in areas of shared interest, and wider dialogues to allow us to share
best practice and act together in our mutual interest. On this basis, we will explore
with the European University Institute options for future participation in its activities
and we will work to ensure that UK students at the EUI will be able to complete their
studies.</p><p>Furthermore, UK universities will be able to continue to collaborate
with the EUI in research projects even if the UK is no longer a member of the EUI
