Pensions

We represent higher education employers in discussions on the future of the USS and are working to make the scheme sustainable while offering the very best pensions that can be afforded.

Immigration

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

Equality, diversity and inclusion

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.

Reports

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