Dear St George's FOI Team,

Some time ago, I wrote to you about the difficulties of recruiting academic staff from the EU in the current political climate. I am concerned, but hopeful that St George's has been able to continue to recruit EU staff in significant numbers.
I was wondering if you would be able to tell me:

1) How many new EU academic staff the university has been able to recruit over the last year
2) How many EU academic staff have left the university over the same time period
3) The overall number of EU academic staff currently working at St George's (this one is less important)

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
Matthew Taylor

Thank you very much for your quick reply.

I am very happy to see that St George's is having no trouble in recruiting and retaining academic staff from the EU.
