Welsh Education Secretary Kirsty Williams has said that EU students and staff are welcome and valued at universities across Wales amid concerns raised in the aftermath of the referendum.
Speaking ahead of her tour of Swansea University's £450 million Science and Innovation campus, she has celebrated the "long and proud tradition of European students coming to Swansea."
Now we face uncertainty and worry following the recent referendum. I want to be clear that students and staff from across the European Union are still welcome at Swansea University, indeed they are welcome at all Welsh Universities. Those already studying here, and those who are planning to come are still welcome, our places of learning are still there for you.
Let me be clear, we will not tolerate any form of racial abuse whether on our campuses or within the wider communities in which we are rooted. Welsh universities will continue to recruit and teach students from the EU and the wider world. The Welsh Government is determined to protect Wales' reputation as a friendly and tolerant place to study and carry out world-class research. Whatever the long-term implication of the vote, we remain an outward looking and welcoming nation where we are committed to sharing knowledge across national borders.
There is still a wide gap between the attainments of children who are looked after and that of other pupils, according to new statistics.Read the full story ›
The Labour party says the General Election will be a pivotal moment for education here and across the UK.
Even though it's a devolved matter, the Education Minister Huw Lewis claims the election is a choice between two visions for education, arguing that the Conservatives would constrain the life chances of young people, whilst Labour would invest in them.
Are we going to continue down the road of austerity and shrink the budget for public services year on year and the inevitable fall out for that in education will be constrained life chances for our young people, or are we going to make sure that we priorities the life chances of our young people?
The Tories meanwhile argue Labour have let down young people here, claiming Welsh schools trail behind others in Europe.
Less is spent on education here in Wales than it is in England, and that's a Labour choice to make that decision - we want to see more spent at the pupils at the sharp end so that the teachers can get the best out of those pupils.
