The UK's globally successful university sector benefits enormously from its appeal to high calibre academics and researchers from around the world. This is certainly the case for the European staff working in our universities. 17% of academic staff and 6% of professional services staff at UK universities are from other EU countries.
We would also like to see a government-backed drive to promote the UK's universities internationally, communicating a welcoming and consistent message that encourages talented staff and students to choose the UK.
