A Global Education System

How the UK should reorganise its university and research programmes

Robert Yee

9th February 2017

The UK has the ability to leverage current networks, continue to fund its current research programmes, and expand funding for scientific innovations. Going forward, the country will have to restructure its funding and knowledge-transfer programmes with its EU allies, and maintain an open environment with visas for people working on high-impact research projects. Furthermore, and almost simultaneously, the UK will need to look to partners in the US and the rest of the world for new programmes as well. Thus, a three-pronged approached is necessary for the UK for the future:

1. Encourage study at UK universities for both EU and non-EU countries

2. Promote international collaboration and innovative research ideas

3. Provide funding and financial aid to programs covered in #1 and #2

The government should support universities and research projects and prove that the country is willing and able to become a key powerhouse of academic prowess for the twenty-first century.

The UK is stuck in a quagmire over EU Defence Unio...

There are several statements in this article to which I have a reaction.
"There have been several scare tactics employed among those who portend of a dismal future for the UK in regards to the sciences" - Why even bother saying more than that these are scare tactics

"A Brain Drain, or a Brain Gain?" - er how about this thing called the internet which facilitates brain being accessible globally by wire? Heard of it?

"The picture of the UK as a hopeless, dismal situation is indeed exaggerated.42" - again why bother writing about exaggerations?

Norway - why use them as an example for anything - They are exceptionaly small and exceptionally wealthy

China and India - populations 2200m? more or less? student populations? 200,300,400m? How many exactly do you want to come to the UK?

We (all countries hosting top universities) should use our "great" universities to help their education system IN THEIR COUNTRY - USING THIS THING CALLED TECHNOLOGY

"applications from the group of 18 year olds that applied this year from last year fell only 1%." - changes as small as this are statistical noise and conclusions should not be drawn

"For the UK to begin the process of truly opening its borders in a globalised world" - really!

The article should be re-written into one paragraph where the author actually says what he means
