Those who did want to cut student numbers saw little difference between those studying at English language centres, colleges or universities. Tony Millns, chief executive of English UK, said that the Government's target of cutting immigration to "the tens of thousands" had created a visa system which was a real deterrent to international students, yet the research showed this did not address the electorate's actual concerns about immigration.
