There has been an increase in the numbers of EU academics leaving Russell Group universities – up 11 per cent between 2015/2016 and 2016/2017 from 3,865 to 4,280. This compares with UK and non-EU academics leaving their posts growing by 4 and 5 per cent in each period.

Chemistry, biosciences, physics and engineering are being hit disproportionately hard. EU academics make up 27 per cent of chemistry departments at Russell Group universities but 36 per cent of academics who left chemistry posts in 2016/2017.
