  • Latest UK ELT statistics show a further 36% drop in student numbers in 2021
    20 May 2022

    Our latest statistics report shows that the impact of the pandemic on UK ELT student numbers deepened in 2021.

    In 2021, English UK members welcomed just 53,616 full-time English language students - about a tenth of the pre-Covid figure. Following an 84% decline in student numbers in 2020, a further 36% decrease was seen in 2021.

RefuAid supports refugees and asylum seekers to continue their education or career with structured support and English classes, usually leading to IELTS or OET. Around a hundred English UK members have offered free courses to RefuAid clients since 2015, many of them on an ongoing basis.
