Government pledges to increase international student numbers

The government publishes its strategy to boost the number of international students in the UK to 600,000 by 2030.

The plan to increase annual income from international education to £35 billion by 2030 was published on 16 March. In the plan, education secretary Damian Hinds and international trade secretary Liam Fox said they wanted to see international student numbers rise by more than 30 per cent from 460,000 today to 600,000 in 2030. 

“As we prepare to leave the EU it is more important than ever to reach out to our global partners and maximise the potential of our best assets—that includes our education offer and the international students this attracts,” said Hinds.
