The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Migration and Universities UK are organising a roundtable debate on migration and international students on 28 November 2012. This meeting will explore the conditions for international students coming to take part in the UK’s further and higher education sectors.
Is the current framework for offering and delivering a worthwhile deal to international students fit for purpose? How could education and immigration policy better fit the interests and concerns of international students? And what will be the challenges in keeping the UK an attractive destination for students into the future?
The meeting will bring together key cross-party parliamentarians and experts to provide different perspectives on the interests of international students in the UK, and how they could be better met by policy and planning.
It will be addressed by the Rt Hon Charles Kennedy MP, Nadhim Zahawi MP, and Shadow Universities Minister Shabana Mahmood MP. The meeting will be chaired by Jack Dromey MP with further contributions from Vice-Chancellor of UEA Professor Edward Action and President of the NUS Liam Burns.
