Over the past five years, the series has demonstrated a trend that students who go abroad are more likely to have better outcomes in both academic and employment measures. In short, mobile students get better degrees and better jobs.
This year's report shows that more students than ever before, and more students from disadvantaged and underrepresented groups, are going abroad. The research continues to make the case for Erasmus+, finding that almost half the opportunities for students to go abroad during their second year were facilitated through the programme.
This year for the first time, UUKi has also produced focused breakdowns looking at data for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The report has been produced with the support of the Higher Education Statistics Agency.
