To ask Her Majesty's Government how many international students with Tier 4 visas gained qualifications in the last academic year for which figures are available.
We do not hold information on how many students with a Tier 4 visa gain qualifications each year.
However, the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) collects data on those gaining HE qualifications by country of domicile. This shows that in the academic year 2015/16 there were just over 150,000 higher education qualifications obtained at UK Higher Education Institutions by students living in non-EU countries immediately prior to them commencing their studies. Not all these students would have required Tier 4 visas to study in the UK.
