International students and the UK immigration debate

This report proves that there is strong public support for international student migration, and that people seem to understand the economic and educational benefits brought to Britain by those who come here to study. It draws on a nationally representative poll by ICM of 2,111 people, together with six deliberative workshops held in York, Bristol and Nottingham.

Based on public opinion, the report makes the following recommendations:

• The government should remove international students from any net migration target.

• The government should launch an international student growth strategy, backed by investment, to promote British universities overseas, build new international partnerships and attract more international students to Britain.

• The government should make a renewed effort - through its words, actions and policies - to communicate a consistent message that Britain welcomes international students.

• The government should enhance opportunities for qualified international graduates to stay in the UK to work and contribute to the economy.
