Research carried out by the UK Higher Education International Unit has revealed that a large proportion of overseas students in the UK would recommend studying in the UK, as opposed to other nations.
85% of overseas graduates recommend the experience to others, a higher proportion than other traditional heavyweights such as Australia, Canada and the US. The UK also improved upon its student satisfaction score, up from 90% in 2008 to 91% in 2015.
The findings are based on feedback from over 365,000 international students studying outside their home country, which was collected from i-graduate’s International Student Barometer. UK HE International Unit director Vivienne Stern said: “While the UK’s improving results and higher satisfaction with the cost of living than main alternative countries suggest we are heading in the right direction, we cannot remain complacent.

My counsellor contacted me every day throughout the application process and helped me receive an unconditional offer. I am so grateful to SI-UK and will never forget them. I will study very hard as I feel this is the best reward I can give the whole team.
