New research published by Universities UK International, the Higher Education Policy Institute, London Economics and Kaplan quantifies the net economic impact of international students studying in the UK.

With 679,970 international students studying for qualifications at higher education institutions across the UK – equivalent to 24% of all higher education students in 2021/22 – international students contribute significantly to economic and social prosperity, both in the short term during their studies as well as in the medium to longer term after they graduate.

The authors estimate that in 2021/22, 1,720 first year international students were living in the Buckinghamshire, bringing a net economic benefit to the economy of £176.9 million.
