THE IMPACT OF HIGHER EDUCATION RESEARCH AND ADMISSIONS POST BREXIT
The UK's universities are among the best in the world – they have an impact on all aspects of life in the United Kingdom, and they’re vital for our future.
Higher Education is one of United Kingdom’s greatest exports. The total value of United Kingdom’s education and training exports to the UK economy at £14 billion, with a projection that this could rise as high as £26 billion by 2025. The UK's universities are among the best in the world – they have an impact on all aspects of life in the United Kingdom, and they’re vital for our future.
The research landscape in higher education is undergoing significant change, with the Stern review, the government's White Paper and Brexit all impacting on the research that takes place in universities.
Like research, admissions from international students will also have an impact. Curbs on overseas students have made UK a laughing stock – to control immigration by introducing restrictions on international students, such as tailoring student immigration rules to the quality of the institutions, is absolutely wrong.
