Submission to the MAC Consultation







The government commissioned the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) to consult upon the current salary threshold level of the skilled-worker route and a potential Australian-style points-based system. The MAC's findings will guide the revision to the skilled-worker route the government intends to implement.


Universities UK (UUK) submitted to the MAC Consultation's call for evidence. This briefing summarises the submission and outlines UUK's position on how the skilled-worker route can be changed to facilitate success and prosperity in UK higher education and research.
