Clare Marchant, UCAS Chief Executive, said:
“We welcome today’s report on international students from the UPP Foundation as part of the Student Futures Commission, which also reflects UCAS’ recent research highlighting the need for providing better support and guidance.
“As part of our trusted and independent role, we want to ensure students can make truly informed decisions about their future and build on the 88% of international students who see the UK as a positive, or very positive place to study.
“Myriad by UCAS, our new platform dedicated to international postgraduate students, provides tailored information about courses, accommodation, scholarships and funding, plus the Myriad Jobs section, helping them search for local work.”
