The Importance of Foreign Students to the UK

14 Oct


Here in the UK, students and universities have been front page news for the last week as the government debates whether to increase university fees. However, a separate debate surrounding foreign students is also beginning to emerge in the press.

There is talk of a new immigration cap being introduced in the UK which would affect the number of international students and staff able to come to study or work at British universities.

A number of top figures in the academic world are fighting against this, making sure the government knows how important foreign students are to British universities.

One of the leading voices is Nicola Dandridge- head of ‘Universities UK’- who has recently spoken out against the immigration cap. In an article in UK newspaper the Guardian, she explains how:

[foreign students] add such richness to our campuses and allow our UK students to experience a global culture that is likely to be essential for their future as graduates in a global world” .

Here at ForeignStudents.com, we couldn’t agree more!

What do you think? Would tighter immigration laws and higher student fees put you off studying in the UK? We want to hear your comments.

If you are thinking of coming to study in the UK, or if you are already here and are worried how the changes could affect you, join our Facebook page to get all the latest news and be part of our community of foreign students.
