    Government research shows only 1% of international students refuse to leave after their course ends

    Analysis commissioned by the Home Office has shown that only 1% of international students who come to the UK on a study visa remain in the country after their visa has expired. The Prime Minister has recently argued that Brexit will allow the UK to significantly cut down on foreign student recruitment, citing “tens of thousands” of foreign students who currently vanish into the system every year. The latest Home Office study, which the government has disputed, would indicate that the true figure is closer to 1,500. Home Secretary Amber Rudd put forward plans on stricter rules for international students at the Conservative Party conference last week, a move which is expected to significantly restrict the ability of UK universities to select overseas students.
