The UK will lose about £460 million from overseas students deciding not to study in the country

Foreign students are off if universities go online

Thousands of foreign students have said that they would not come to Britain to take degrees if they were taught online, and would expect a discount on fees if part of their course was taught that way.
A survey of 30,000 university applicants from around the world, who were hoping to study abroad, found that the plans of 57 per cent had been disrupted. This is up from 46 per cent in April when a similar survey was conducted by QS, which analyses trends in higher education.

It comes as experts estimate today that the economy will suffer a loss of at least £460 million from overseas students shunning the chance to study in this country.
