The recent THE rankings, where Oxford and Cambridge positioned themselves at the top, are a global sign that the UK's academic education is superb and positively affecting its political and economic status.
Lord Bilimoria, the co-chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on International Students and chancellor of the University of Birmingham, stated that four generations of his Indian family studied in the UK. He also said "We are in a global race. Demand for international students from countries like India is increasing at 8% per year. We’ve got to compete and I think we could do more." He asserted that fact that students going home after finishing their studies is the targeted goal, and then, international students will be welcomed more in the UK.
The director of Universities UK International, Vivienne Stern, encouraged students to see Brexit as an opportunity. Furthermore, the Prime Minister, Theresa May, will give a speech about the Brexit negotiation process in Florence next week, Downing Street has announced.
Mark Garnier, the junior minister in the UK's department of international Trade's global offices, claims that students will largely benefit from the Brexit. Amber Rudd, the home secretary, claims that international students collaborate to the economic status of the UK. However, there is a hope that more liberal approaches will be considered by the government when it comes to overseas students.
