Professor Christina Slade, Vice-Chancellor of Bath Spa University, has written a blog for Wonkhe on the threat to higher education posed by A two-tier Tier 4 system.
She writes: "Leaving the EU is a challenge for all UK universities and a particular challenge for smaller ones. Smaller universities face not only the loss of European students discouraged by the lack of guarantees for student finance, but also the threat of a differential visa regime which favours research intensive universities.
"Leaving Europe will hurt the young – their job prospects and their ability to function globally. The worst affected will be those with the least social and economic capital. I believe that the current and developing immigration policy on student visas will ensure that this effect is compounded," she concludes.
