Mayor of London gathers capital's universities for Brexit talks


All students benefit from international visiting academics to enrich their knowledge whether in the arts or sciences and students of architecture, design and engineering will be no less affected, should Brexit deter European academics from teaching in the capital.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, is now gathering the capital's world-leading higher education institutions to discuss the implications of the Government's handling of Brexit and its future immigration proposals. The Mayor is concerned that proposals fall short on providing the flexibility London needs to attract skills and talent, including in research, innovation and teaching in the higher education sector.

He also wants the UK to continue participating in European projects - such as the Erasmus study exchange and the Horizon scientific research programme - whatever the outcome of Brexit negotiations.
