Professor Alan Manning responds to the commissioning of the MAC by the Home Secretary to assess the impact of international students in the UK.

The call for evidence sets out how the MAC will approach responding to this commission and how stakeholders can be involved in this process. It identifies the evidence that the MAC would find most helpful to receive.

The briefing paper provides some preliminary analysis of international students in the UK to accompany the call for evidence. It does not make any policy recommendations. As with all our briefing notes, we welcome comments and feedback on any of the issues raised, as well as responses to the wider call for evidence.
