There seems to be an arrogance in the higher education sector too when it comes to how domestic and foreign students are treated- we seem to be under the impression that because we have such world-renowned institutions of learning that students will keep coming no matter how we treat them. Maybe they will, but perhaps they shouldn't - perhaps Britain doesn't deserve them.
It is time to recognise that there is a serious problem in the UK, in the treatment of international students. Indeed, after paying unregulated fees through the roof, non-EU international students face an increasingly impossible situation upon graduation.

In 2011-12, the UK attracted 435,235 international students; 70% of which were from outside of the European Union. This makes the UK the number two country globally for welcoming international students, and continues to keep the UK's educational institutions at the forefront of global knowledge and innovation.
Yesterday, Theresa May made it clear how she and her government see migrants. By saying 'high migration made a cohesive society impossible', May proved it is an intolerant and hateful ideology that drives the government's immigration policy, rather than sensible and rational policy.

During your time at university and as is governed by the varying forms of academic assessment, you are likely to find yourself indulging in the 'this could go either way' delights of group work and recruiting for your very own version of The Breakfast Club.
If Theresa May has her way, I'll be deported in two months - never mind the five years I spent earning two prestigious British degrees and the £70,000 I took out in loans... In the eyes of the home secretary, I'm an American cash cow to be put to pasture.
Over the past couple of decades, international students have been increasingly seen as cash cows by universities, colleges and the government; especially as cuts to education have increased.
The international students in the UK provide British universities with so much money, it would really not be detrimental to us in any significant way for them to work part-time or find graduate jobs after studying. Many of us Brits love to travel, study abroad, work abroad, and retire abroad. We need to be more open to those who wish to do the same in the UK.
UK universities reach more international students, in more countries than anyone else's: thanks to our culture of widening access and our rich history of distance learning, the UK's 131 universities reach pretty much every country in the world - that's more than 600,000 students worldwide who are studying for UK Higher Education qualifications.
