PMI Student Experience strand
These pages document the work of the Student Experience strand of the second phase of the Prime Minister's Initiative for International Education, which ran from 2006 to 2011.
About the PMI
The Prime Minister’s Initiative (PMI) was originally launched by the Government in 1999 as a 5-year strategy to increase the number of international students in the UK. In 2006 a second phase of the PMI (known as PMI2) was launched. This five-year strategy comprised five interconnected projects (marketing and communications, HE partnerships, FE partnerships, student experience and employability) and aimed to:
- attract an additional 70,000 international students to UK HE and an additional 30,000 international students to UK FE
- double the number of countries sending more than 10,000 students per annum to the UK
- improve international student satisfaction in the UK
- achieve significant growth in the number of partnerships between the UK and other countries
PMI2 therefore represents a major opportunity to increase the focus on the importance of the international student experience. UKCISA coordinated the student experience project and managed a wide range of associated activities.
