A Roundtable symposium, jointly hosted by University of St Andrews (Dr David McCollum and Dr Paula Duffy) and the Royal Society of Edinburgh
University of St Andrews academics David McCollum and Paula Duffy, in conjunction with the Royal Society of Edinburgh, hosted a roundtable event on 6th September 2018 to discuss the significance of international students in Scotland and formulate proposals as to how this can be preserved going forward. Scotland is relatively successful at attracting international students but is also vulnerable to geopolitical changes such as Brexit as they make up a comparatively large share of its student population. The purpose of this roundtable is to build upon the momentum generated by the recent submissions from the RSE and others to the UK Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) on the economic and social impacts of international students on the national, regional and local economy, and on the education sector.
