International Students: Bleeders? Feeders!

Aurora Brief Reviews No. 11 September 11 2019

September 2019

Universities UK International has published a report “International Graduate Outcomes 2019”, based on the responses of over 16 000 international and EU students from 58 UK universities who graduate between January 2011 and July 2016. Respondents come from a wide variety of countries, with the US and China being the biggest with only 7% and 6% respectively.

International alumni like their universities and their studies and feel it helps their labour market value – what else is new?

But more interesting: around 85% feel they now earn average or above; 80% would recommend study in the UK. Of those planning to go on in research, 77% would seek collaboration with UK researchers. Of those on a professional track, 81% plans to develop or maintain professional links and 77% will prefer to do business with the UK over other countries.
