A recent report by the UK HE International Unit at Universities UK today (9th December) shows that the UK is the global leader in high quality undergraduate education for international students and “excels in teaching and learning”. The research, International Undergraduate Students: The UK’s Competitive Advantage, shows that a higher proportion of international students would recommend the UK than any of its major English-speaking peers.

Key findings include:

  • International undergraduate students rate the UK number one for student satisfaction, ahead of the USA, Canada, Australia, Germany and New Zealand.
  • International undergraduate student satisfaction with UK higher education is very high at 91% and satisfaction has increased in every area of the learning experience.
  • 85% of international undergraduates who study here would recommend the UK experience to others; the highest recommendation rate of all of the major English-speaking destinations.
  • Despite the UK’s improving satisfaction results, some other countries are enjoying faster growth than the UK.
