Over the last three years, international students enrollment at UK universities has drastically slowed down, creating a great risk for the UK of losing its position as the second most popular destination for international students.
However, applications from Chinese students to study at UK universities have gone up 30% last year. Making of China, the most popular origin of international students (representing 23% with 118.320 students studying at 148 universities), followed by india (representing 3.9% of the total of international students with 18.275 students studying at 135 universities) and the united states in third place (with 15.945 students studying at 145 universities)
European students represent 30% of the total number of offshore university students in the UK. The top countries are Italy, France, and Germany. How is Brexit going to affect this? Will the volume of applications from European students decrease if they have to pay full international fees?
Finance experts, Rangewell, have created a tool that shows the number of international students to the UK per country of origin and a second interactive tool that breaks down the amount of international students per university in the UK.
With a total of 16,300 international students enrolled, University College London is the most popular university among international students in the UK followed by the University of Manchester and The University of Edinburgh.
