UK universities Concerned Over Indian StudentsUK universities have reported a drop of between 20 and 30% of Indian students in the forthcoming academic year starting later this month. The drop has caused much concern over the future of  Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) courses that have been popular among postgraduate Indian students. The reduced number of Indian students this year has led to concerns in some British universities over the financial viability of STEM courses.

Nicola Dandridge, chief executive of Universities UK, which represents all universities and higher education institutions, told the Business, Innovation and Skills Committee of parliament that, vice-chancellors were “particularly concerned” about the impact of less Indian students on STEM subjects.

The committee, which published its report on ‘Overseas Students and Net Migration’ last week, recommended that Indian and other non-EU students should be removed from overall immigration figures since most of them return home after their courses. The recommendation, however, was rejected by the government keen to cut immigration from outside the EU.
