star this property answer text <p> </p><p /> <p> </p><p /> <p>The information requested is not available. Currently net migration of students is measured via the International Passenger Survey (IPS) which estimates volumes of students arriving and leaving, based on their stated main reason for entering the UK at time of arrival (which may not correspond with their visa) and their stated answer to the question of why they originally came to the UK when surveyed at the time of departure. It does not measure the type of institution attended, the level of course studied, whether the student graduated or how long it has been between finishing the course and departing from the UK. Once exit check data are available (from Autumn/ Winter 2015), it may be possible to start using visa data to estimate the balance of those coming, those staying legitimately and those departing. However to get a full picture may take several years and will depend heavily on the ability to match the exit data with visa data. The data will not take into account whether a student graduated or not.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
