Tories are offering nothing but meaningless soundbites, says Angela Rayner
British universities have fallen in the latest international rankings as concern persists about the potential impact of Brexit on the country’s higher education sector.
While the performance of many western European institutions – in France, Portugal, Germany and Italy – has declined, the most significant falls have been in the UK where universities have seen a real-terms cut to government funding for research.
Commenting on British universities falling in the latest international rankings, Angela Rayner MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Education, said: "This news is cause for great concern for our universities, and for Britain's reputation as a global leader in education and research.
"Brexit appears to have dented international confidence in our universities, along with the uncertain future of research funding and immigration rules.
"The Tories are offering nothing but meaningless soundbites when we need a real plan to ensure that our universities can access both the funding and the talent they need to continue as world leaders."
