Chamber’s February lunch speaker Charles Parkinson is a keen advocate of a Guernsey University for international students. A new report out this week confirmed that the UK benefits by £25 billion from this income stream.
Dame Julia Goodfellow, President of Universities UK, said: “These figures highlight the enormous economic contribution international students now make to UK plc and to jobs and communities in every region of the UK.

“The spending of international students and their visitors now provides a major export boost for the UK economy. This is not something limited to London or to one or two big cities, but to towns and cities across the UK.

“While this report focuses on economic impact, it is important to remember that international students also enrich our campuses and the experience of UK students, both academically and culturally. Many return home having built strong professional and personal links here that provide long-term, ‘soft power’. benefits for the UK.
