International student recruitment



There are 442,375 overseas students studying at universities in the UK. This includes over 127,000 European students. At the same time over 700,000 students study on UK university programmes delivered outside the UK.

We work with a range of organisations on initiatives to encourage the recruitment of international students to UK university programmes.

This includes supporting the Study UK Discover You campaign which promotes the benefits of a UK education to international students. Launched in November 2016 and delivered by the British Council, the campaign is co-funded by the UK government’s GREAT campaign and the British Council.

Prospective international students can find a wealth of information on studying in the UK via the Study UK Discover You website
