About this book

Foreign students have travelled to Britain for centuries and, from the beginning, attracted controversy. This book explores changing British policy and practice, and changing student experience, set within the context of British social and political history.

About the authors

Hilary Perraton is an Historian based at Institute of Education, University of London, UK. He served for seven years on the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission and, to celebrate the scholarships' fiftieth anniversary, published Learning Abroad: A History of the Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan (2009).

Reviews

“Hilary Perraton is ideally qualified to write this survey of foreign students and their experience in Britain, after a career in education in the Commonwealth and organisations involved with student exchanges and scholarships. … it is an important scholarly achievement that will be the essential starting-point for further work on the subject.” (Robert Anderson, History of Education, January, 2017)
