A new report from Universities UK International finds that 156 UK higher education providers have reported students studying through transnational education (TNE) in the 2019-20 academic year, which is the highest figure to date.
This fifth edition of The scale of UK higher education transnational education provides a snapshot analysis of where, at what level, and through what type of provision TNE students studied during the 2019−20 academic year. It also includes a longitudinal overview of trends in TNE from 2015–16.
In-depth analysis reveals the huge contribution of international students to the UK’s economic prosperity.
Every part of the UK is financially better off – on average by £390 per person – because of international students.
International students in Sheffield, Nottingham, London, Cardiff, Glasgow, and Newcastle are among those to deliver the greatest financial contributions.
This study, published by Universities UK International (UUKi) and the Higher Education Policy Institute (HEPI), with research from London Economics, is about the costs and benefits of international students to the UK economy.
