Internationally connected

Higher education has always been an international activity.

We are active in the global marketplace, recognising that - now more than ever - collaborating with parters across the world is essential. We attract the brightest and best students from across the globe because our world-class teaching helps them discover, innovate and translate their learning into the real world.

We collaborate with researchers around the world. Together we are addressing the big challenges of the 21st Century: a growing and ageing population, the depletion of our planet's resources, climate change, cultural and social cohesion, and a fast-changing technological and economic landscape.

It is essential that international researchers and students are welcome in UK universities - and that our students and researchers have the opportunity to work and study abroad. It is important that we have a sensible visa policy to support this.
