In a message to Cranfield University staff and students, Professor Sir Peter Gregson, Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive, said: "As you will have heard me say before, Cranfield is a global university. We are proud of our community of staff and students from all over the world - it is what makes our University such a special place to work and study.

"Our research and teaching is directly addressing some of the world’s greatest challenges such as climate change, global security and resilient infrastructure. The knowledge we seek to impart on the world knows no boundaries. This remains as true next week as it is today. We will continue to spread our knowledge, to work with our international partners and to attract global talent to both our staff and student bodies."

The University has created a resource page for prospective students to help answer any questions.
