Rest of the students enroll themselves in courses outside of UK universities. Out of them, 4% leave for the United States to pursue their careers ahead.
A survey was conducted on around 1,000 Indian students amongst the 16,000 students from other Nationalities who studied in the United Kingdom between 2011 and 2016 period. The results found are given as follows:
- 51% percent of Indian students graduating from the UK earn above-average salaries.
- Of these students 82% are satisfied with their careers.
- 60% students feel they got the job which matched their expectations.
It is interesting to note that the percentage of students going to UK for higher studies has increased by 42% in the last one year. While the number of Indian students studying in UK got almost double in the last two years. These are the latest immigration statistics provided by the UK Home office.
