Ziraat Times Web Desk


Srinagar, Oct 25: According to a recent report from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) titled ‘International Migration Outlook: 2023, 4.24 lakh Indian students went abroad for studies in 2023.

According to the report, China and India are the top two countries of origin for international students in OECD countries, with 8,85,000 and 4,24,000 students, respectively.

Due to partial or complete border restrictions in all OECD nations in 2020, there was a sharp drop in the number of permits granted to international students. However, in 2022, these flows of students recovered and reached their highest point ever in about half of the OECD countries. In 2022, the OECD issued more than 1.9 million residence permits to foreign tertiary-level students. This is the highest number ever recorded and 24% higher than in 2019.

The United Kingdom, rather than the United States, is the top country receiving new international students for the fourth year in a row. Japan, Australia, and Canada complete the top five recipient nations.

Several OECD countries have announced sweeping changes or reforms to the migration policy framework in the past year including rules for international students.

The United Kingdom government announced restrictions on student visa routes in May 2023. Only international students in post-graduate research routes will be able to bring family members. In the face of record-high immigration numbers in 2022 – due in part to a fast-growing number of dependants of international students, which increased by 750% between 2019 and 2023 – the UK had to take these steps.
