This July 4th seminar presents results from CGHE’s Brexit Priority project on the consequences of and responses to Brexit in UK higher education. The team of Simon Marginson, Vassiliki Papatsiba, William Locke and RA Ludovic Highman conducted case studies in 12 contrasting UK universities from the four nations. The data set of 127 semi-structured interviews has been coded and analysed by Ludovic Highman and Xin Xu. The seminar will discuss findings on the emotions expressed by interviewees, identity and belonging in relation to Europe, present and future engagement in Europe, and the effects of Brexit in different research disciplines.
