Universities Scotland manifesto ‘asks’ for the 2019 General Election

Ahead of the UK General Election on 12 December 2019, Universities Scotland has prepared a briefing which outlines the higher education policies we’re seeking support for in political parties’ manifestos and from the next government. The short briefing should be considered as a companion to Universities UK’s manifesto briefing.

Our ‘asks’ have been divided into five themes recognising different policy agendas. The themes are:

  • Letting people and places reach their potential
  • Putting global talent to work for Scotland
  • World leaders in science and research
  • A prosperous Scotland post-Brexit
  • Actions to be taken in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
