Welcome to BUILA

At BUILA we represent the interests of our 139 Higher Education institution members in this important sector which contributes over 14 Billion to the UK economy

The international arena continues to face some major challenges for all involved with international work in UK Higher Education with the:

  • uncertainty over Europe in advance of the referendum
  • the policy changes and reforms to immigration rules and regulations which impact on international students
  • increased competition from our global competitors to maintain our pole position as a leading study destination

The BUILA Executive Committee continues to work on our members behalf to respond to these changes through lobbying, through the provision of a forum for debate at a senior level, and through support for the professional development of members and their international staff.
