Celebrating the UK’s global student community

More than 450,000 international students study in the UK each year, forging lifelong connections, friendships and partnerships. 

The UK’s education sector thrives on these global connections – with international collaboration lying at the heart of many solutions to our shared global challenges.  

International students contribute £20bn to the UK economy each year, and bring social and cultural value to our classrooms, workplaces, and local communities. 

Join #WeAreInternational to celebrate international students’ positive social and cultural contribution to the communities where they study, work and live.
