UK government’s policy deters international students, a report says

UK government’s policies intended to curb immigration has put off foreign students from pursuing their studies at the nation’s universities, according to the report submitted by the committee of ‘House of Lords, Science and Technology’.
 
There has been a decrease of 10% in the enrollment of the foreign students over the previous 2 years, especially in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

According to the statistics from Warwick, a university in UK, 8,237 foreign students have studied at the university accounting for 35.9% of students in 2012-13.

In 2012, more than 120,000 students have come into UK for higher education. However, this number has far exceeded the limit set by the government to curb immigration.
 
A spokesperson from Home office has said that the committee report provides no evidence to support that the government’s rules of immigration has put off the international students to come and study in UK and added that UK is still a popular destination for international students
