Our response to the appointment of Sajid Javid as Home Secretary

Responding to Amber Rudd’s resignation and the appointment of Sajid Javid, Sarah Williamson, a spokesperson for Destination for Education, said:

“We hope that the change in leadership at the Home Office will mean a change in approach to international students, and for Destination For Education, this means removing students from the net migration target, and enabling a visa system that encourages students to work and contribute to Britain’s emerging businesses. We welcome the appointment of Sajid Javid and we hope this will signal a new approach to government immigration policy, with policy based on the evidence and what is necessary to support both Britain’s economy and one of Britain’s greatest export opportunities - international education.”
