Coventry University Brexit request for overseas students

Coventry University released a statement today (Wednesday) as Article 50 is triggered, to detract overseas students from immigration figures.

The University urges the government to make the visa process easier and simpler for overseas students that wish to stay in the UK to study at post-graduate, research, or PhD level. The statement recognises the students as big contributors to the UK economy.

“Last year, Coventry guaranteed that fees for EU students would not exceed those of their UK counterparts for five years – but as a sector we must keep pressing for students to be removed from immigration figures, so that UK higher education remains competitive, welcoming and diverse,” the University’s Vice-chancellor, Professor John Latham, said.
