Research and policy 

To support and improve the experience of international students studying in the UK we monitor policy developments and liaise with government and the education sector to improve policy and practice. We are members of the All Party Parliamentary Group on International Students which allows us a forum to voice any concerns and to campaign for change.

By partnering with our members and funding pilot projects and research we are able to disseminate best practice reports and useful findings for those working with international students.
