International students in English universities


The Education Committee has launched an inquiry into international students in English universities.

The inquiry will examine the changes in numbers of international students in recent years, the impact of international students on university funding and availability of places for domestic students, and whether universities are achieving an appropriate balance between international and domestic students.

The Committee will also look at recent and proposed changes to student visas and the Graduate Route to understand the impact of these changes on international student numbers, as well as the effectiveness of the Government’s International Education Strategy.

Read the call for evidence for more detail about the inquiry.

Following the announcement that a General Election will be held on 4 July, Select Committees will be unable to meet from 24 May and will cease to exist from 30 May until after the General Election. This inquiry has therefore closed.


This inquiry is no longer accepting evidence

The deadline for submissions was Thursday 23 May 2024.
