Overseas Admissions to UK Universities at an all Time High

November 2017, 28
EMAIL  Print A+
Figures from UCAS show that number of students pursuing studies from abroad has increased by 2% to stand at 70,945. There was a 2% decrease of Students from EU countries to stand at 30,700.

The immigration policies of the Government did not have a great impact and many international students were admitted to British universities in the present year, which is a record.

The data also reveals that there was a 5 percent augmentation in students from countries outside the European Union, with a total of 40,245. UCAS is of the opinion that even when there was a slight slump in EU students, the increase resulting from non-EU countries made up for it.

The figures appeared to stun fears that hard talk from the PM on immigration, was putting off international students, from applying to institutions in the UK. The manifesto of Conservative had promised tough visa requirements for students of a foreign country.

Universities were expecting a decline from Indian students, because of the feeling that they were not welcome. The present data suggest that regardless of such forecasts, the UK was the most popular destination to pursue studies.

Sarah Stevens, Policy Head, Russell Group, said that this is a positive message that several talented students, from the world, are interested to study here, and feel attracted, by the outstanding teaching system of the universities. She was worried that the drop in EU places now, is owing to the continued uncertainty because of the Brexit issue. The Government should provide clarity on the matter and relieve the doubts of the stakeholders.

Alan Smithers, Professor of Education, University of Buckingham, said that the increased presence of overseas students, in the universities this year, than ever, has proved, that the fears, about tough immigration policies, have not put them off. The figures enhance the excellent reputation of universities in the world.

Students from Non-EU areas are highly sought by all universities as they pay higher fees compared to UK/EU students. The fees are placed at £9,250, for UK/EU students and the international undergraduates are required to pay £13,000. 50,000 foreign students, stay in the UK every year, after finishing their course.
