Calls for evidence from universities

Universities UK is working closely with the UK government to ensure key departments, ministers and officials are clear on the implications of Brexit for the higher education​​ sector.

Evidence and feedback from universities on how Brexit is impacting UK higher education, including staff, students, and science and research is helping to make the case for action in priority areas.​

Please submit evidence to info@universitiesuk.ac.uk.

In addition, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has set up a dedicated inbox to receive evidence of any post-Brexit impact on science and research: research@bis.gsi.gov.uk.
