Nic is an honorary member of National Union of Journalists and the European universities’ communication network EUPRIO and regularly writes for University World News and Times Higher Education special supplements and other specialist higher education media, including blogging for EUPRIO.

He won the Outstanding Higher Education Journalism Award in 2015 from the UK Chartered Institute of Public Relations for his investigation for the BBC into the brain drain after former Soviet states, such as Lithuania, joined the European Union.

His recent blogs include a look at how a ‘Spotify’ type subscription library service could be the answer to students faced with soaring textbook inflation and whether UK voters need three choices should there be a second Brexit referendum.

News stories for University World News include a look at an European study into why university PR & Comms offices need to work more closely with their international departments and whether the Commonwealth could help British higher education remain international after Brexit.
