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 stories include a look at whether the Commonwealth could help British higher education remain international after Brexit and how a Swiss-style replacement for Erasmus+ is viable if, and when, the UK leaves the European Union.
