Recent changes to immigration policy risk seeing the UK lose its international position as a favoured destination for international students.
At a time of great change in higher education, and with recent alterations to visa regulations settling in, this conference evaluated what this means for the sector. It also debated the merits of removing student immigration from the overall figures, and considered what UK institutions can do to retain their competitive edge.
Key issues covered include:
- impact of the changes to the Post-Study Work visa
- should international students be removed from the overall immigration figures?
- have crucial routes into higher education been protected?
