Indian students in the UK fallen by 50% since 2010
Research by London First and Price Waterhouse Coopers has revealed that the number of Indian students travelling to the UK to study as international students has fallen by 50% since 2010.
Since the closure of the Tier 1 (post study work) visa route in 2012, which allowed students to remain without sponsorship in the UK for two years to seek employment, alternative visa routes and scholarships have been unable to address the issues.
Since the closure of the Tier 1 (post study work) visa route, there has been a decrease of 88% in the number of students securing visas after university.
While the number of Indian students has fallen by 50%, the number of Chinese international students has increased by more than 50%.
International students have contributed over £2.8 billion pounds to the country while only consuming £540 million.
