Home Office data on exit checks

23 August 2018

Responding to Home Office statistics on exit checks programme data, Jessica Cole, Head of Policy at the Russell Group, said: “International students bring enormous benefits to the UK. Today’s exit check data confirms that, in addition to their diverse cultural contribution and positive economic impact, the overwhelming majority leave before their visa expires - 98%.

“In order to be a truly global Britain, particularly after Brexit, it is critical that we continue attract international talent.”
