A message to current and prospective international students studying in the UK:
The result of the United Kingdom referendum on EU membership has no implications for international students pursuing education in the UK, including those who are currently studying in the UK. The UK has always been and continues to welcome high quality international students - there is no cap on the number of international students who can study here.
There are currently over 500,000 international students from over 80 countries studying in the UK. These students contribute immeasurably to the diversity and intellectual vitality of UK education, making a critical contribution to UK research capacity and standing in the globalised knowledge economy.
