Andrew Bridgen urges Government to build on the success of research and education in the UK

Andrew Bridgen urges the Government to build on the success of research and education in British universities which have an enviable reputation around the world.

Andrew Bridgen (North West Leicestershire) (Con)

It should be clear to the House that our universities have an enviable reputation around the world. Indeed, research and education are two of our greatest exports. In the light of that, what steps is the Minister taking to ensure that that success not only continues but increases?

Michelle Donelan

This is essential. We have a target for 2030 of 600,000 international students coming to this country. We do value their importance as an international facilitator in our education system.
