UK as a member of EU plays an important role in the success of the nation’s universities. It will also contribute to the growth of economy, graduates who are employable and discoveries based on research.
Professor Dame Julia Goodfellow feels that the membership of EU will make the country’s universities stronger.
In her first speech she is going to ask the government to support the universities in some major areas such as making a commitment to close the gap between UK’s investment in innovation and research.
She had also asked for government support to attract potential foreign students and staff towards UK institutions. This can be done by ensuring that the rules and regulations for visa and immigration are well placed for genuine foreign student.
High quality learning experience is delivered only when the requirement of stable and sustainable funds for the universities are fulfilled.
According to the official figures, 94% of the graduates are working or they study for more than 3 years after their graduation and 80% of them doing professional jobs. Graduates from the UK universities earned around 10,000 pounds yearly than the other. She said responding to a question.
The UK is always acknowledged for its leading research power. She added.
The universities will continue to ask the government for removing international students from their target of net migration, as majority of the students go home after completing their studies.
