Envoys and MPs toast foreign students

London Education And Research Network (LEARN) members and their international students were invited to Parliament to celebrate International Students Day with Paul Blomfield MP, Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for International Students, the British Council, MPs and Peers. Guests heard an impassioned speech by Yinbo Yu, of the National Union of Students, who outlined the inspirational but sometimes difficult journey faced by many international students in the UK. He said the Home Secretary’s moves to take students out the net migration figure was a “golden opportunity” to show that foreign students were welcome in the UK “because for too long international students have felt under attack.”
