Department for International Trade MP Graham Stuart has written to the Boarding Schools Association (BSA) making it clear that the UK is ready to welcome international students back to their schools. Addressing international students and their parents, Mr Stuart’s letter also references the measures schools have taken in line with the BSA Covid-Safe charter. The minister writes: "International students bring huge benefits to the UK, socially, culturally and economically and, as a government, we are proud that so many parents trust UK schools to give their children the best possible education. International students make our world class schools even better. They enrich the experience of all students, bring greater diversity to our school campuses and stimulate fresh ideas and new perspectives. This cultural exchange helps build life-long friendships, as well as laying the foundations for future networks, and important business, political and diplomatic bridges."
The full letter is available on the BSA website. BSA is extremely grateful to the Minister for his support for the sector.
