UK faces fall in applications for courses from India..

British universities have reported a significant fall in applications for courses from India for the forthcoming academic year starting September-October.

The actual scale of fall in students from India and other non-EU countries will be clear by September, when students arrive to start their courses, but lesser number of applications received by April-May suggests that international students may be looking elsewhere.

Britain faces stiff competition mainly from Canada and Australia to attract high fee-paying international students. challenge has increased as changes to the student visa regime in the UK – – particularly the closure of the post study work visa – – have been reported widely in countries such as India and Nigeria.
