A report last month from the Office of National Statistics showed an exciting shift in the international student population: Indian students have overtaken Chinese as the largest foreign demographic studying in Britain. According to a report, visas granted for Indians shot up by 273% in just a few years.
Minister of State for External Affairs V Muraleedharan confirmed that until October this year, over 1 lakh 20 thousand Indian students have embarked on their educational journeys abroad in the UK.
He also said that over the past three years, UK higher education has seen an extraordinary surge in Indian students. In 2019, 36,612 thousand made their way to British universities; this number grew exponentially to 44,901 in 2020 and then 77,855 by 2021 – that’s over double from two years prior!
