LYS condemns government plans to cut international student numbers

Liberal Youth Scotland is appalled by the UK government’s plans to cut international student numbers by almost half.

They claim they want to attract the best and brightest to the UK from all over the world, but their actions speak louder than their words. This idea is bad for our economy, our society, and our universities.

 

These international students fund education for British students, spend their money in local British businesses, and create over 130,000 jobs. If this Brexit government truly seeks to promote British values in education, they should set an example of respect for individual freedoms. They should drop these damaging plans now and remove students from immigration figures entirely.
