The Education Select Committee of the House of Commons has published a report on the opportunities and challenges for higher education posed by Brexit.

Concerned that the uncertainty surrounding Brexit could cause a “damaging brain drain”

Neil Carmichael MP, Chair of the Education Committee, said:

“Higher education in the UK is a world leader but Brexit risks damaging our international competitiveness and the long-term success of our universities. It’s welcome that EU students have been given some guarantees on their funding and loan access but the Government must act urgently to address the uncertainty over EU staff  and avert the risk of a damaging ‘brain drain’ of talent from our shores. As we leave the European Union we now have the opportunity to reform our immigration system to ensure we reap the full rewards of the ability of our universities to attract the brightest and best students and staff from across the world.”
