Chair of Russell Group universities says universities should embrace Brexit

The chairman of the Russell Group of universities, Sir David Greenaway, has broken ranks with other university heads and declared Brexit "the catalyst we all need" to become "more global" and "more outwardly facing".

Sir David is the Vice Chancellor of the University of Nottingham which has jumped four places to 21st in the latest university league table by the Complete University Guide. It plans to take advantage of Brexit by strengthening its ties with partners round the world.
