Integration of international students: A UK perspective

With almost one in five students in the UK coming from abroad, the international student has become a big part of Britain’s higher education landscape. In today’s world of global education, integration is an essential consideration for all students in terms of diverse learning and cultural awareness. However, the productive integration of international students has an impact on students and faculty, as well as on the prospects of an institution and a nation.

This report examines the importance of international student integration in the context of the UK higher education sector, international student decision-making and the UK student perspective. Alongside insight into trends in international student decision making, the report features the results of an exclusive survey which provides an understanding of UK student perceptions on the integration of international students. The reports reveals that although the diverse backgrounds of international students contribute to the richness of university life, institutions and local students also play a critical role in the integration of international students and the long-term socio-cultural, academic and economic contributions they provide.
