University of Bradford Council Bulletin - April 2017
Welcome to the first bulletin for Council, which will alert members to important University and sector information between formal meetings.
In this bulletin we feature the development of our Medical School, the recent trip by members of the University to the Middle East, the next iteration of the University’s virtual tour and an update on the Team Bradford event - an annual fixture designed to bring fun and a student and staff team spirit onto campus.
Article 50 has finally been triggered and much remains to be seen about the impact on staff and students in universities and on the potential for future European research collaborations. We will continue to keep members briefed on the potential impact.
We now know about the Great Repeal Bill and the volume of EU legislation that will be translated into UK law in advance of the UK leaving the EU. This will translate into a very heavy schedule of Parliamentary consideration which may impact on other planned legislative change.
The Higher Education and Research Bill is still making its way through the Parliamentary process. A further report on the detail of this will be made to the next meeting of Council.
