International higher education in Facts and Figures 2017

This annual publication gives a data snapshot of UK higher education and internationalisation. It examines international students choosing the UK; where they come from and their choices; and student satisfaction. Then it moves on to the UK sector’s provision for students who want to study outside the UK; UK student mobility; international staff and research collaborations; and the economic benefit of international higher education.

The analysis in this booklet shows that the UK’s world-leading universities are becoming increasingly global in nature. This amplifies their success and contribution to the UK economy and society. The extensive international networks and experience of our university staff and students will be especially valuable as the UK leaves the European Union and establishes new relationships around the world.
