2018 HEPI / HEA Parliamentary Breakfast Seminar: Little Britain or Open Borders – what role for universities in defining Britain’s new place on the world stage?

As the UK faces up to a future outside the European Union, our universities could have a pivotal role in defining the country’s future. But how can this be delivered? Should they focus on local, national or international priorities – or try to deliver all three? And how can institutions remain world class if they are less able to recruit international students and researchers? How can the UK continue punching above its weight in research across a wide range of disciplines when there are so many new obstacles in the way?

    My PhD thesis investigated the issues of international student recruitment across UK HEIs. I am interested in attending this talk, how do I go about registration?
