A recent survey commissioned by Regent's University in London of overseas students in the UK found that approximately 80% backed the quality of their courses and teaching and that almost 90% would recommend studying in the UK.
It is worthy to note that 90% of overseas students feel welcome, with a positive personal experience of people in the UK this appears to be filtering back overseas and the Universities & Colleges Application Service (UCAS) has reported a year-on-year increase in applications from overseas students.
Bradford has a large number of international students; approximately 25% of the local student population are from overseas, representing 110 countries. They have a strong tradition of welcoming international students with a dedicated International Centre offering specialist advice and assistance to their overseas students from application to graduation. Mr Mahmood of Bradford College International Centre commented that Bradford College is proud of providing an "excellent learning experience" for their international students, not only in their academic studies, but also in enabling students to experience the friendly environment of the college and combining students of diverse nationalities and cultures.
Overseas students have a higher expectation of their accommodation and in Principal International's experience; they have a preference for self contained purpose built student accommodation.
