This report from the Science and Technology Committee finds an 'unwelcoming' UK has led to an unprecedented fall in international Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) student numbers. International STEM student enrolments have fallen by more than 10% in the last two years. The Lords inquiry looked specifically at the numbers of international students in STEM subjects, and whether the UK's immigration policy has had any impact. The Committee calls on the Government to rethink their immigration policy, which it calls contradictory. The Government is simultaneously committed to reducing net migration and attracting increasing numbers of international students (15-20% over the next five years. Students, who comprise a majority of non-EU immigrants, should be removed from the net migration figures. International students make a huge contribution to the academic, intellectual and cultural vibrancy of UK universities, also enriching the experience for domestic students. International students also contribute very significantly to university finances, often partly subsidising courses for domestic students. Some courses, particularly taught Masters, are made viable by international student enrolments, and a fall in international student numbers poses a real threat. In terms of the labour market, UK Plc is missing out on highly skilled workers. The Government should review their package for international students every two years to ensure it is globally competitive and it should reinstate the previous post study work route, which was simple and effective. Welcoming and clear language should be used in information is provided to prospective students.
