International Higher Education in facts and figures

02 June 2016

Universities UK and the International Unit have collaborated to produce their annual overview of key statistics about international students and Higher Education. 

‘International Higher Education in Facts and Figures 2016’ covers a range of areas, from where international students want to study, to which countries undertake most internationally-collaborative research. Again, these various measures show the UK to be one of the leading nations in the world in terms of global higher education. 

Key points include:
The UK attracts more international students than any other country outside of the USA
The UK has the most satisfied international students
Over 22 000 UK students have spent a period abroad as part of their degree
