Policy, research & statistics
Last modified: 14 July 2016
We constantly monitor policy developments in the UK, and elsewhere, related to the mobility of students and liaise with government and the education sector to improve policy and practice. Published examples of our policy analyses and responses to consultations can be found on our website, but much of our dialogue is informal and ongoing.
Research and statistics
We conduct occasional pieces of research such as surveys of international students’ experiences and of institutional support services. These can be found in our publications catalogue.
We do not collect or hold statistics on international students in the UK, but we publish a summary of statistics provided by other bodies.
From time to time we undertake funded projects which expand our activities, most notably leading the student experience strand of the Prime Minister's Initiative for International Education from 2006-2011.
