Universities boost economic growth and graduates can earn a high salary premium – but higher education policy is in a mess, Brexit is a threat to many institutions and universities are under political attack.

The panel, chaired by Andy Westwood (University of Manchester), includes Simon Burgess (University of Bristol), Sandra McNally (University of Surrey), David Willetts (Resolution Foundation) and Gill Wyness (University College London/ London School of Economics).
