UCML Plenary Afternoon Workshop
POST-BREXIT IMPLICATIONS FOR HE LANGUAGES
With the likelihood that the Government will commence negotiations towards leaving the EU during 2017 – what are the implications for HE languages? What should UCML be lobbying for specifically? What can UCML and the wider sector do to address concerns which will affect the health of our disciplines.
There will be three main areas of debate, each with speakers & open discussion:
Section 1: Student mobility
Section 2: International research collaboration
Section 3: Making the case for languages in a new geopolitical climate
Conclusion: Ways forward
