London mayor Boris Johnson’s analysis has found that Indian students in London are the third largest revenue generator for the city, with Indian students paying 56 million pounds in fees and nearly 74 million pounds in living costs, with the money creating and supporting 1,643 jobs.
The report also confirms a fall in Indian students in the UK from 10% of all international students in London in 2010, to 4% in 2014.
One executive of Study London said Indian students like the businesses, play an important part in London’s economy. The research shows they are a key contributor to the 3 billion pounds international students make to the economy.
China was the biggest contributor followed by the US.
