Submission - HoC Home Affairs Committee - immigration

31 January 2017

Overseas talent at the UK’s leading research-intensive universities is fundamental in underpinning excellence in research, innovation and education.


Staff and students from across the globe help us maintain our position as a world-leading research nation. Russell Group universities are highly internationalised. A quarter of staff and more than a third of academics at our institutions are from overseas and 37% of first year students are from outside of the UK.

Excellent overseas students are indispensable for world-class universities, contributing to a diverse student body and a thriving society, culture and economy – not just on campus but for the UK more widely.
