Speaking about Brexit and its impact on UK universities the Bynum Tudor Fellow for the 2017-18 academic year, Lord Bilimoria CBE, delivered a timely and highly relevant Bynum Tudor Lecture for 2017.

Lord Bilimoria asked whether the Government was making universities a priority, and whether they are appreciated by either the public or the Government. He went on to highlight the importance of international students to both universities and the wider UK economy before pointing out the loss of funding which will result from leaving the EU, he then drew this conclusion: 'Brexit is a huge mistake. It is a sword hanging over our universities, be it our students, academics and our research.'
