UK Universities Are Going Online to Beat Brexit - Management Today

Higher education's dual dilemma of Brexit and a squeeze on student visas is proving a catalyst for innovation in an otherwise conservative sector, says the founder of EdTech start-up Keypath. Under pressure to curb migration, and despite the concerns of industry and universities, the government has been reluctant to remove international students from the official migration statistics or loosen visa rules that put some of the world’s best and brightest students off studying here. Brexit too, with a 9% decline in EU student numbers over the past six months alone, is adding further pressure on our global standing. In response to some of these challenges, UK universities are accelerating their investment in online degrees. Whilst we must continue to address falling numbers of international students arriving on campus, the growth of high-quality digital degrees presents an enormous opportunity for businesses in the UK and for individuals looking to work, earn and learn. http://www.managementtoday.co.uk/uk-universities-going-online-beat-brexit/future-business/article/1429896
