The Department for Education and Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy have jointly issued two new fact-sheets on UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and Innovate UK. The fact-sheets provide a summary of the rationale for setting up each organisation, and the government’s intentions as set out in the Higher Education and Research Bill.

The British Universities Financial Group (BUFDG), in conjunction with Universities UK and Hefce is running a free event in London on Thursday 1 December 2016 to explain the forthcoming changes to university finances arising from the introduction of the new statement of recommended accounting practice for higher education institutions.

The event is targeted at those who are responsible for scrutinising the financial accounts of higher education institutions, including chairs of governing bodies and governors.
The Higher Education Policy Institute (HEPI) has published a new report examining the extent to which students attending higher education institutions experience mental health problems.

The report suggests that governing bodies may wish to consider giving one governor a specific remit to monitor the institution's progress in implementing mental health support.
