Multiple Manchester Mayors have endorsed CIUK’s fairs. Reflecting how important international students are to Manchester’s economy. Manchester University has the second largest number of international students at UCL, and the fees they pay are larger than the revenue of Manchester United and Manchester City combined.
“We welcome all the international students and those companies who can provide work opportunities for them to Manchester. We must recognise the importance of international students because they are the backbone of our economy.”
– Councillor N. Hassan, Lord Mayor of Manchester
