Higher Education and Research Bill - Briefing

06 December 2016

Higher Education and Research Bill

We support the Government’s commitment to maintain and build on the world-class research and innovation taking place at our leading universities. However the Government should be careful about making any substantial changes to a successful system that allows us to punch above our weight internationally.

Russell Group universities deliver outstanding research hand in hand with excellent teaching – and this is central to the student experience they provide. We welcome the Government’s willingness to consider and propose amendments to the Higher Education and Research Bill that will strengthen the UK’s world-class higher education system.
