JOB SEARCH ABROAD TRAINING IN THE UK:
Our education consultancy knows the importance of how quick job search and techniques of searching play the role of international students' financial graphs. If we look at our market of student recruitment is based in Nepal, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, etc. from where international students come to the UK but most students need a part-time job to maintain their living expenses in the United Kingdom.
Our Key Research findings
- Career support is a significant consideration when choosing where to study: An overwhelming majority of international students say the careers support (82%) and employability skills (92%) they thought they would receive were ‘important’ or ‘very important when choosing their university. Yet only around half (52%) believe their institution is doing well at satisfying the careers support needs of international students.
- Students on courses with embedded employability skills are more satisfied: Three-quarters (75%) of students who say employability skills are embedded in their course are happy with their course and university, compared to just 43% for those who say employability skills are not part of their course. Students who feel their courses have not covered employability skills are twice as likely to say that, in hindsight, they would pick a different institution to do the same course (18% versus 8%) and three times as likely to say they would go to a different institution to do a different course (12% versus 4%).
Expectations of career support post-graduation vary: Students are split on whether their university careers service should provide tailored support about careers in their home country – 42% of students say it should, and another 42% say they do not expect this.
- International students struggle to find access to work experience opportunities in the UK: Four in ten (39%) international students have done no work experience during their time at university. Sometimes, this is not out of choice. Focus group participants complained, ‘I’ve been applying for work experience but have had no success after six months of trying, ‘Competition has been really high trying to get placements, [and] COVID has made it worse’ and ‘I think the UK companies are timid in the face of a hostile immigration system’. The majority (71%) of international students say they plan to stay in the UK to work after graduation, at least for a while, and among those who plan to stay, over three quarters (77%) are concerned about whether they will earn enough to support themselves.
The quality of UK higher education is unquestionably something the rest of the world respects about our country. Demand among international students held up even in the depth of the first global pandemic in a century. But we cannot take such strong demand for granted because Brexit has meant a halving in the number of EU students arriving here to study and because other countries also want to recruit more international
‘If the UK is going to compete globally for international students, ensuring that they get the support they need to prepare for future careers, in the UK or their home country, would set the UK apart from other countries. Increased support for international students will also benefit UK students who are looking to develop their careers globally.’
