UK education secretary to oppose cuts to int’l student numbers


The UK secretary of state for education, Gillian Keegan, has shown strong support for international students and the wider sector, with reports that she will oppose any potential cuts to international student numbers by the Home Office.
“It’s a sector we should be very proud of,” said Keegan, in an interview with the Financial Times. “It’s world-leading, a great advert to our country.”

Keegan told the publication she wanted to build on the UK’s export market in university education and to expand education export revenues from about £26bn to £35bn by the year 2030.
