Universities UK International Students Poll
Survey of 2,018 British adults on behalf of Universities UK regarding opinions towards international students post-Brexit.
  • When considering the number of international students in the UK, British adults are most likely to say they would like to keep the same number (44%); one in five British adults (18%) say they would like to see more international students in the UK.
  • A slight majority of British adults (53%) say that if the UK adopted a policy to help boost growth by increasing the number of international students coming to their country, they would support this policy.
  • Seven in ten British adults (70%) say that when international students graduate from UK universities, it is better if they use their skills here and work in the UK for a period of time in order to contribute to the economy rather than returning immediately to their home country.

A quarter of British adults think of international students (24%) or EU students (23%) coming to study at a UK university as immigrants.
