PA’s Mike Boxall, a higher education expert, is quoted in an article about Edinburgh University announcing that it wants half of its places to go to overseas students.
Mike explains that overseas students are very attractive to universities because they can be charged unlimited fees.
He goes on to explain that there are reputational benefits, with some international league tables giving credit to universities that have a higher proportion of overseas students and staff.
Mike continues: “If you have over 40 per cent of your students from overseas on some courses it is going to change the student experience.
“Some academics and registrars believe that they have as many international students as they want and universities must manage this process carefully to ensure they don’t almost exceed a cultural limit."
