Overseas students: the impact on domestic student numbers

Abstract: The rapid influx of international students into UK universities over the past two decades has expanded the number of places available for domestic postgraduates, according to research by Stephen Machin and Richard Murphy. Universities seem to use the extra fees from overseas students to subsidise domestic postgraduates. Their study also finds that domestic undergraduate numbers have been unaffected. Strict quotas on the numbers of domestic undergraduates have probably impeded their growth.
