New Report – GuildHE Members’ views of the Student Visa System
The report, which draws on research conducted with GuildHE member Institutions, finds that meeting visa compliance requirements is seen as a key strategic risk among smaller institutions, with nearly three quarters of respondents including the risks associated with immigration on their main corporate risk register.
International students make a huge contribution to UK higher education, bringing the best minds from around the world to study here, creating a diverse academic community as well as their financial impact. Yet the consequences of “getting it wrong” with even with one or two international student visas can be severe for smaller institutions.
