IDP Joins Exporting Education UK
IDP Education (UK) Ltd is proud to be a member of ExEdUK as part of our ongoing commitment to supporting international education in the UK and representing the interests of our university partners to key stakeholders.
A new report from Exporting Education UK (ExEdUK) and Parthenon-EY estimates that the decline in international students arriving here since 2011/12 has already cost the UK £1.1 billion, with a further £8 billion in opportunity cost forecast by 2016/17.
The report, which provides the first comprehensive account of the impact of the UK’s student visa policies on the international education sector, offers seven recommendations to government to reverse the decline and secure the significant economic contribution which international students bring to the UK – including supporting over 200,000 local jobs.
ExEdUK also provides secretarial support to the newly launched All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for International Students. The overarching purpose of the APPG is to promote the value of international students to UK education, economy and ‘soft power’.
