"[Nigel] Farage and [Donald] Trump – who has described himself on Twitter as “MR BREXIT” – are clearly right to scent an international political movement on the rise," Morgan writes in his superb analysis of the new international political climate. Read it here.
The new politics not only in the US, but also in the UK, could have big implications for the international student market, says Rahul Choudaha in this blog.
As you might expect, academics have been reacting to the news on social media sites in huge numbers. Here's what Rob Ford, professor of political science at the University of Manchester and a polling expert, had to say - and it's not very complimentary. Head over to his Twitter page for all of his tweets on this issue (only a few included below).

We have failed consistently to give you an accurate account of what is out there. We aren't the only ones, but as academics it is our job— (((Rob Ford))) (@robfordmancs) November 9, 2016
I'm not sure how I fix this but the best place to start is by accepting the fault. I hope we can learn to do better.— (((Rob Ford))) (@robfordmancs) November 9, 2016
Times Higher Education's digital and communities editor, Chris Parr, has been blogging about the result.
"What does the election of Trump mean for higher education in the US? When I tweeted this question from the THE account, one person replied simply: 'It means it has failed'."

University students in some Democrat states have protested against the result.
Students at the University of Oregon took to the streets of the campus and the city to protest against Donald Trump as it became likely he would win. Reports on Twitter claimed that people were burning paraphernalia emblazoned with Trump’s trademark slogan: “Make American Great Again”.

Anti-Trump protesters have also gathered at the University of California, Berkeley.
Meanwhile, Trump supporters at Sydney University in Australia were allegedly removed from the campus bar after chanting: “Grab them by the pussy! That’s how we do it!'”, according to reports on Twitter.

Scott Jaschik, editor of US higher education publication Inside Higher Ed, looks in detail at how Donald Trump's victory is likely to be received by universities in the US.
"The Republican candidate regularly attacked colleges as politically correct, his comments about non-Americans in the US worried many college leaders who depend on international students, and he rejected consensus science about climate change and other topics."
What the election of President Donald Trump means for universities
An overview of what Donald Trump has said about higher education during the 2016 election campaign:
In October, Donald Trump dedicated several minutes of a speech in Ohio to higher education policy:
Mr Trump's team has said he plans to move the government out of lending, and restore that role to banks. He has endorsed income-based loan repayment, and criticised institutions for not spending their often substantial endowments on students.
Students, he says, should "not be asked to pay more on loans than they can afford", and he has suggested that loans be based on graduates' incomes, while repayment should be capped at 12.5 per cent of borrowers' income.
Mr Trump has said he would like to end tax-exempt status for institutions that fail to use large endowments to reduce the cost of tuition. "If colleges refuse to take this responsibility seriously, they will be held accountable," he said.
He has also made reference to "tremendous bloat" within the US higher education sector, suggesting he believes there are significant administration savings to be made by universities and colleges.
Other higher education policies
Sam Clovis, the national co-chair and policy director of Trump's campaign and a tenured professor of economics at Morningside College, has spoken in more detail about Mr Trump's plans for higher education.
These include a complete overhaul of the federal student loan system, steps to guarantee free speech on campus (although there has been little detail on this), and a rejection of a state-federal partnership to make community college free for new high school graduates. Read more on these plans here.
