Webinar | Wednesday 20 March 2024 | 12:00 - 13:00 | 1 Hour
The government’s pledge to reduce net migration has introduced significant measures, including restricting international students from coming to the UK.
On the other hand, commitment to the International Education Strategy (2019), aimed to increase the numbers of international students studying in the UK to 600,000 per year by 2030. However despite this commitment, recent immigration measures, effective from 2024, means a balancing of these two conflicting commitments will bring challenges for the Higher Education sector.
Restrictions on family members joining students, switching into work routes and visa fee increases are likely to impact on the attractiveness of the UK as a destination for international students. In addition, under new plans to increase minimum salary threshold by over 60% in spring 2024, Universities will face further challenges with recruitment of skilled academics who may no longer qualify for sponsorship under the new regime.
Join Ashley Norman, Tijen Ahmet and Angharad Aspinall from our Higher Education Group in the second of our HE spring Wednesday Webinar series. They will discuss how universities can balance the conflicting demands above.
This session will be relevant to anyone in the higher education sector with responsibility for HR, immigration, visas, recruitment and international students.
This is the second in our higher education spring series of Wednesday Webinars. Our higher education specialists will be hosting our other session from 12:00 - 13:00 on 13 March.
