unstar this property answer text <p>We are working with responsible social media companies to take robust action against terrorist material from groups like ISIL. Since 2010, over 90,000 pieces of terrorist-related material have been removed at the request of the dedicated Counter-Terrorism Internet Referral Unit. We want industry to go further and see them employ a zero tolerance approach to terrorist activity on their networks. We will continue encouraging companies to produce industry standards for the identification, removal and referral of terrorist activity. We have initiated work on this, together with the Minister for Internet Security at the Department for Culture Media and Sport.</p><p>We have also helped build the capacity of civil society groups through training and support, in order to give them the tools to challenge extremist messages online and provide credible alternatives. For example, the Home Secretary has given her personal support to the campaign launches of Families Matter, aimed at showing the distress caused to families by young people travelling to Syria and Iraq, and Making a Stand, promoting the voices of women to directly challenge the ISIL narrative.</p>

We work closely with the UNHCR to identify cases that they deem to be in need of resettlement and we will continue this work to ensure even greater numbers are identified and provided with refuge in the UK. Individuals admitted under the Scheme to date are in addition to nearly 5,000 Syrian nationals who have been granted asylum in the UK since the crisis there began.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Published Home Office immigration statistics record data on all people coming to the UK or remaining here who are subject to immigration control. This includes all non-EU students. International students are also included in net migration statistics that are produced by the independent Office for National Statistics (ONS). In line with the internationally agreed UN definition, these statistics define a migrant as someone changing their normal place of residence for more than a year. Students are therefore included in the same way as other migrants. Other countries, such as the United States, Canada, and Australia also include students in their net migration figures. Like other migrants, students who stay for longer than 12 months have an impact on communities, infrastructure and services while they are here, so it is right that they are included in the net migration count. The ONS estimates that in the year ending March 2015 there was a difference of 96,000 in the number of non-EU students coming to and leaving the UK. Therefore student emigration, or the lack of it, is a key driver of overall net migration. We have an excellent offer for international students, and as a result we remain the second most popular destination in the world for international higher education students. The latest figures show that visa applications from university students are now 17% higher than they were in 2010 and visa applications to Russell Group universities are 33% higher than in 2010.</p>
