Indian students 3rd in generating London’s revenue

LONDON (TIP): Indian students in London were the third largest revenue generator for the city last year, contributing £130 million. London mayor Boris Johnson’s first-of-its-kind analysis has found that Indian students paid £56 million in fees and nearly £74 million in living costs, with the money creating and supporting 1,643 jobs.

But the report also confirms a major fall in Indian students in the UK -from 10% of all international students in London in 2010 to around 4% in 2014. While Chinese student numbers have grown by 49% since 2009- 10, the Indian numbers have continued to decline, falling by 11% year on year.

“Indian students coming to London and the rest of the UK have approximately halved over the last five years,” the report says.
