At QA Higher Education, we are excited to be part of the #WeAreInternational campaign, dedicated to celebrating the invaluable presence of international students in the UK. These students play a vital role in enriching our campuses and fostering a diverse and multicultural community that enhances the educational experience for all.
Hear what our students Rachael Balogun from Nigeria and Tala Hafeez from Pakistan have to say about their experience:
Together, Let Us Make a Difference:
The #WeAreInternational campaign presents an extraordinary opportunity for all of us to showcase the true value of international students in our higher education community and beyond. By uniting and amplifying their contributions, we can counter negative perceptions, reshape the narrative, and foster a welcoming environment for students from around the world. Join us in this worthy cause as we stand together to celebrate diversity, inclusivity, and the global impact of international students in the UK.
The impact international students have on the UK Economy:
As well as enriching our campuses and creating a diverse and multicultural community, international students remain a significant net contributor to the UK economy.
Recent figures show over the period from 2018/19 to 2021/22, international students contribution soared from £31.3 billion to £41.9 billion. Their spending also stimulates various sectors, including hospitality, retail, accommodation, and transportation, creating job opportunities and bolstering local businesses.
This reaffirms their status as invaluable and that our students play a crucial role in maintaining the UK’s economic stability and growth.
