Detail

The main aim of Occasional Paper 90 is to provide estimates of the proportions of non-EEA students, required to apply for visas under Tier 4 of the Points Based System (PBS), who are coming to study in the UK at different types of institution and at different levels (in particular the split between degree level and sub-degree level).

A secondary aim was to provide information on student behaviours, in particular the degree of compliance with their permission to enter the UK between institution types.
