star this property answer text <p>The government values international exchange and collaboration in education and training as part of its vision for a global Britain. Irrespective of the outcome of Article 50 negotiations with the European Union, the government wants UK and European countries to continue to give young people and students the chance to benefit from each other’s world-leading universities post-exit.</p><p>We are open to exploring participation in the Erasmus+ successor scheme (2021-27) though this will ultimately be subject to wider UK-EU negotiations on the future partnership. This is part of considering a wide range of options with regards to the future of international exchange and collaboration in education and training, including potential domestic alternatives.</p><p>While Erasmus+ is the largest mobility programme in which the UK participates, evidence suggests that around half of UK higher education outward mobilities take place outside of the Erasmus+ programme. It is clear other EU countries strongly value and benefit from the UK participating in Erasmus+, and we can expect our world-leading higher education providers to continue their strong track record of partnering with overseas institutions in all eventualities.</p>

These include the appointment of an international education champion to help build links with priority countries and unlock barriers to international exchange and partnership. In addition, the strategy sets out actions to ensure that international students have the best possible experience studying in the UK, and that doing this maximises their employment opportunities.</p><p>The government will be working closely with institutions, Universities UK International and the British Council to develop partnerships, deliver trade missions, to provide forums to develop sustainable mutually beneficial transnational education programmes and to develop annual updates to the strategy.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework (TEF) recognises and rewards high quality teaching in higher education. Its purpose is to give all students clear information about where teaching quality is best, and to hold higher education providers to account for the quality of their teaching, learning environment and student outcomes. The TEF recognises the needs of all students, including students with disabilities, for high quality teaching and outcomes.</p><p> </p><p>The TEF metrics used in the assessment process are benchmarked to take account of the entry qualifications and characteristics of students, and the subjects studied at each university or college. These benchmarks include disability. The TEF assessment is therefore based on what each college or university achieves for its particular students. The contextual information provided to assessors to help them interpret the metrics for a provider includes information about disabled students at that institution.</p><p> </p><p>Higher education providers, in the submissions that support their assessments, can also highlight aspects of their provision, which might include support for their students with specific needs. Assessors will consider the whole range of factors before arriving at a final TEF rating.</p>

They bring greater diversity to university and college campuses, an international dimension to the experience of all students, stimulate demand for courses, and add to the UK’s impressive research capacity. They are also an important source of income for our education sector. International students at UK HEIs contributed an estimated £11.9 billion to the UK economy in 2016 through tuition fees and living expenditure.</p>
