Our work​​

Student experience

The UK’s universities want to provide students with a world-class education so that they can achieve their full potential.

Inclusion, equality and diversity

We support and promote life-changing opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds at every university.

Brexit and UK universities

We are working with our members, the university sector and government on the implications for universities and students of the UK's vote to leave the EU.


We want to see an immigration system that helps universities to attract genuine international students and highly skilled staff to study and work in the UK.


​We regularly publish reports and briefings on a wide range of policy topics and issues affecting universities.
