A look ahead to the week for UK higher education plus all that's new on Wonkhe        

The higher education week ahead

NESTA and UUK both publish reports today on the use of data - by organisations and by universities in teaching and research. On our Data Blog today, the HE sector's data wonk in residence Andy Youell brings this all together and asks what it means for universities. He writes that "HE is in the unique position of being both a supplier of skills and a sector that needs these skills itself; we are sitting at both ends of the telescope and perhaps could learn much from ourselves."

Odds and sods elsewhere

The Daily Mail details the government's plan to kick out international students after they complete their studies, or as BIS Secretary of State (and supposed champion of universities and students at Cabinet) Sajid Javid put it succinctly last week: "Study here, then leave."
