Our response to the CBI report on post-Brexit immigration

Responding to the CBI’s report on post-Brexit immigration, James Pitman, a spokesperson for Destination for Education said:

“We warmly welcome the CBI’s proposals to measure migration by the contribution people coming to the UK are making and their calls for a globally competitive post-study work offering for international students.

Destination for Education have long been calling for students to be removed from the government’s net migration target, and their inclusion in the target sends the wrong message to talented and entrepreneurial students around the world - that they are not wanted in the UK. Removing the target altogether would support Global Britain and assist the UK in attracting international students, who have a net impact of £20bn to the UK economy, to come and study here”
