This third paper from the IU is part of a series of three reports examining the UK's competitive position with respect to international student recruitment and international student experience at postgraduate research level. The findings are derived from i-graduate's International Student Barometer (ISB) survey, which is supported by statistics on international student recruitment and enrolment in the UK and its comparators. The evidence demonstrates that the UK has the highest satisfaction rating for research student experience, whilst a higher proportion of international postgraduate research students would recommend the UK than any of its major English-speaking competitors in teaching and learning.
