Survey: How would an independent Scotland be perceived as a study destination by Non-EU International Students?

02 March 2017

Fahd Asif at the University of Dundee has sent through the following request to UKCISA members:

Dear Colleagues,

I am undertaking a piece of research (as part of my MSc) to look at how Scotland is perceived as a study destination by international students from outside the European Union, their opinions on Scottish Independence and the possible implications independence might have on students coming to study here. A key aim of this research is to gather responses from current international students studying in Scotland to enable a preemptive strategic appraisal of sector wide implications of independence. A summary of key findings will be disseminated via SUIG once the project is completed in May 2017.

I would be extremely grateful if you could please circulate this quick (3-5 min) survey to international students at your institutions. I am keen to broaden the sample as much as possible, so any help in spreading the word about it will be very much appreciated.

Here is the link to the survey

Please feel free to get in touch with me on if you have any questions or would like to contribute to this research in any way.

Many thanks in advance for your help,
