International facts and figures 2018

International Facts and Figures is an annual publication that presents a snapshot of the international dimensions of UK higher education. 

The analysis in this booklet shows that UK universities continue to become more international, year on year.

The 2018 report includes a new section with regional breakdowns of UK higher education engagement across the world.



The report provides an overview of:

  • The international students choosing the UK, where these students come from, what level they study at and which subjects;
  • The international students who study for UK degree programmes outside the UK through transnational education;
  • The UK sector’s provision for students who want to study outside the UK on outward student mobility schemes;
  • The international staff choosing to live and work in the UK: where our staff, both academic and non-academic come from and what they do;
  • The collaborations, funding and partnerships from across the world that benefit our research.
