The Value of UK HE as an Export

16 Jul 2018

Currently, the UK remains an extremely attractive place to study for overseas students. Over 300,000 students study in the UK as international students, with a further 135,000 from the EU, making the UK the second most attractive destination for international students, just behind the USA. This appeal comes from the great strength of the higher education sector in the UK, and this strength is derived from its diversity, and the incredible offer that all universities can make to overseas students. All UK universities engage in world-class teaching and research and provide attractive courses to students from the UK and around the world.

Ignoring the current risks, and failing to capitalise on opportunities, will, however, harm the ability of the UK to build on this success in the future.
