The Universities UK Bulletin – 21 September 2018

Dear David,

Welcome to the Universities UK Bulletin, a regular round-up of Universities UK (UUK) activity including reports, events, blogs, and higher education sector news and initiatives.

Patterns and trends in UK higher education 2018

UUK has published its annual analysis of data on the UK higher education sector. The report focuses on applications, student demographics and graduate outcomes; staff backgrounds and expertise; and the income and expenditure of higher education institutions. 

Main findings see increased demand for university places from 18-year-olds, with those from less advantaged backgrounds 49% more likely to apply than a decade ago, as well as increases in the number of BME and female professors. Read the report in full on the UUK website. 

UUK Members' Annual Conference 2018

Response to Joint Expert Panel report on USS valuation

UUK has welcomed the report of the Joint Expert Panel (JEP), which was published last week. The JEP was established by UUK and the University and College Union (UCU) to independently review the 2017 valuation of the Universities Superannuation Scheme, including its processes and assumptions.
Alistair Jarvis, Chief Executive of UUK, expressed hope that the panel's findings will 'create the space for UCU and UUK to find common ground to conclude the 2017 valuation.' UUK will now consult with employers over the panel's findings, and has established to further support employers with their communications to staff on USS.

BME student attainment – roundtable evidence sessions

BME attainmentAs part of UUK's joint project with the NUS to address the attainment gap that exists between white and BME students, we are hosting five evidence sessions for university staff, students and other stakeholders: 
  • 18 October – Aston University
  • 30 October – UWE, Bristol
  • 14 November – Glasgow Caledonian University
  • 21 November – London (location tbc)
  • 23 November – Yorkshire (location tbc)
 Spaces are limited, so please contact Dan Hurley to attend.

Office for Students' (OfS) consultation on access and participation in England

UUK is seeking members' input to inform our response to the OfS consultation on its proposed new approach to access and participation regulation. UUK has been engaging closely with OfS, calling for an extended duration of the plans to allow universities to take a longer-term, strategic approach to the issues facing their own university community.

Please send your views or questions to Daniel Wake by Friday 28 September 2018. Input will be collated by UUK and anonymised where requested. Separately, we encourage members to respond on behalf of their own institution ahead of the OfS' deadline of 12pm on Friday 12 October 2018.

Ban 'essay mill' cheating services

UUK supports the campaign for tougher action against essay mills (companies selling custom-made essays to students). They undermine the high standards of UK universities and are unfair to honest students. Sign the petition to take action.

MAC reports on international students and EEA workers

UUK responded to the publication of the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) report on the impact of international students in the UK, by saying that "while the report recognises the enormous contribution international students make to life in the UK, we are disappointed with its main recommendations". Our response featured in The Guardian, BBC News, Financial Times, The Times, Daily Mail and The Sun.
UUK also responded to the MAC's report on the impact of migration from the European Economic Area (EEA): "we hope the UK government now develops promptly a reshaped immigration system that encourages talented international university staff to choose the UK".
