Student visa policy and migration numbers

06 Jun 2013

Both the House of Commons and House of Lords will today (6 June 2013) debate the value of international students to the UK, urging the government to remove international students from immigration targets. In 2011 we published International Higher Education: missing an opportunity?. We welcome the further opportunity provided by these debates to examine the Government’s approach to international students and the apparent reluctance of Ministers to take account of the views of five Select Committees that international student numbers should be removed from the migration numbers.
