Home Affairs Committee inquiry into post-Brexit migration policy

The Home Affairs Committee is undertaking an inquiry into what the post-Brexit migration policy for the UK should be.

Universities Scotland responded highlighting the importance of migration for the higher education sector in Scotland. In our submission we highlighted:

  • The UK’s decision to leave the EU offers an unparalleled opportunity to review the whole migration system
  • There is a strong case to support devolution of aspects of immigration policy
  • Remove international students from the net migration targets
  • We welcome the move to a more evidence-based approach taken by the UK Government
  • The UK Government must work with the whole HE sector on merit in regards to immigration policy
