In many areas of the UK, language teaching is an economically-crucial yet invisible export industry. Students come here and study, spending money not only on tuition and accommodation, but also on transport, tourism, entertainment and shopping. Although the students are often worth millions of pounds to a particular area, their contribution and importance can go unnoticed to the general public although they may benefit indirectly. People are often surprised to learn how much money students bring into their local economy.
We therefore have compiled a report as a best estimate of the value of students to the UK's towns, cities, counties and nations, to be used in English UK members' campaigns, and as a useful resource for MPs, councillors, and journalists.
This report can only be accessed by English UK member centres and can be found in publications & reports.
