Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) released data showing – an increased number of international students are considering London as their destination for education. The number of international students studying in universities across London has increased by 8.4% – risen by 1,35,490 since the previous year.

The period of 2019-2020 has seen a record number of international students chose London. London was thus reinstated globally as the place of choice among international students.

The unprecedented increase in the number of Indian students in London is attributed to the reinforcement of the two-year post-study visa for international students by the UK government. Indian students, by virtue of the new post-study visa, can stay back after their study in UK in search of employment for a more extended period.

London accented to the first position internationally, overtaking Tokyo and Melbourne as the best city in the world for education as published by the QS Quacquarelli Symonds education consultancy.

55,465 Indian students enrolled for higher education across universities of the UK. A majority were admitted to institutions across England, followed by Scotland and then Wales and Northern Ireland.
