An inquiry has been launched into the impact of exiting the European Union on Higher Education.
The Education Committee will look into the risks and opportunities for UK students both here and in Europe, as well as the likely impacts on EU students studying in England.
The inquiry remit extends to how changes in the freedom of movement rules may affect academics and staff as well as students, and how UK universities can remain competitive after the withdrawal of the UK from the EU.
The impact of Brexit on university research and funding is not covered by this inquiry as these policy areas are the responsibility of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. The Science and Technology Committee is conducting a separate inquiry into the implications stemming from the UK's exit from the EU on science and research.
