Detail

Report commissioned by BIS to inform the government’s policy and efforts in support of the higher education (HE) and further education (FE) sectors. It establishes an estimate of the value of overseas trade and investment in education-related activities to the UK economy. It also covers historical trends and forecasts that will help understand the future growth potential. The research aims to help BIS to formulate a supportive policy framework to allow HE, FE and associated business sectors to increase their income from overseas and attract more foreign direct investment.
