Caroline Lucas MP, visits Bellerbys College, Brighton

16 October 2012

Caroline Lucas is the only Green Party member of the UK Parliament. As a dedicated MP she spends a lot of time talking to the community in her constituency, Brighton. We were honoured when she came to visit Bellerbys College last week.

Representing Study Group and the educational sector, Managing Director for Higher Education UK, James Pitman, discussed the impact of current government policy on international students. The company and sector have significant concerns and Study Group are already part of a steering group on the matter. Ms Lucas met our top-performing students, who also mentioned their concerns and told her about their success in Bellerbys.

Through talking to our students and academics, we hope to have shown Ms Lucas how important international education is to Brighton and to the UK. We are one of many companies in our industry who provide quality education of national and international significance in our increasingly connected world. Since her visit, we have learned that Ms Lucas has tabled a question for the Home Office in the House of Commons.
