As President of the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA),  Lord Bilimoria gave the opening keynote speech at the UKCISA Annual Conference 2016 on 29th June.  In his speech he highlighted the benefits that international students bring to the UK, from economic prosperity, to soft power, to international competitiveness, and reflected on the current political narrative on international students relating to visas, net migration targets, access to work, skills and talent.  The potential future development of these policies – especially considering the EU Referendum result – were considered, as was the burning question of the day, where next for the UK’s international student strategy?
