THE Home Secretary has systematic an examination into either the rising series of unfamiliar students are squeezing out immature Brits.
It recently emerged that universities are holding ever some-more undergraduates from abroad who compensate distant aloft fees, while the series of UK-born field is falling.
That sparked fears that immature Brits are being denied a full preparation so colleges can heighten themselves.
The examine will be carried out by the eccentric Migration Advisory Committee, as partial of a wide-ranging demeanour at the sum impact of general students on multitude and economy.
Amber Rudd also pronounced she wants the full contribution to help strengthen the repute of Britain’s universities as some of the best in the world, as good as a major trade boost to the economy.
Ms Rudd said: “There is no extent to the series of genuine general students who can come to the UK to study.
“We know how critical students from around the universe are to the aloft preparation sector, and that’s because we wish to have a strong and eccentric justification bottom of their value and the impact they have.”
