UK Report Seeks to Increase Outward Mobility of British Students

A new report stresses the importance to the UK economy of sending more students to study and work abroad:

Universities and Science Minister David Willetts said:“Study abroad offers a huge range of benefits for students taking part, and also for our universities and the wider UK economy. Students improve their employability, institutions develop their international links and businesses value the wider experience of those who’ve spent time abroad. It’s a win-win for all. The number of UK students taking overseas placements has been low. Today’s report and our new funding arrangements will help address this gap.”
