Country Studies on Student Mobility: Britain.
This report examines mobility, enrollment, and policy trends regarding overseas students in the United Kingdom (UK). First, a brief description of education in the UK is presented. Next, UK policy developments to 1989 (including the introduction of full-cost fees) concerning overseas students are discussed, including an account of policy development since the early 1960s. The report then presents information regarding overseas student enrollment in the UK (mainly for the academic year 1988/89) and compares this with the data for 1979/80, the last year before full-cost fees. Also examined are the components of British government policy, those elements which, it is noted, basically form the framework within which the situation of overseas students today must be viewed. Finally, a critique of current British policy and practice towards overseas students is presented. Appendices (comprising two-fifths of the report) include supporting narrative and statistics on overseas student enrollment in Britain since 1979, British government-funded scholarship schemes, key policy statements on overseas students since 1979, a list of higher education institutions in the United Kingdom, and a list of the organizations involved in overseas student affairs and in education. Contains a 66-item bibliography. (GLR)
