International postgraduate competitive advantage front coverThis second paper from UUK International is part of a series of three reports examining the UK's competitive position with respect to international student recruitment and international student experience at postgraduate taught level. 

The findings are derived from i-graduate's International Student Barometer (ISB) survey, which is supported by statistics on international student recruitment and enrolment in the UK and its comparators. The evidence demonstrates that a higher proportion of international postgraduate taught students would recommend the UK than any of its major English-speaking competitors in teaching and learning.​
