Synthesis Report: Attracting and retaining international students in the EU

This Synthesis Report presents the main findings of the EMN Study on Attracting and retaining international students in the European Union (EU). The study is very topical
in light of the transposition of the Students and Researchers Directive ((EU)2016/801) which sets out a common framework for admission and residence of students from third countries in the EU. This study explores the national policies and practices in place in Member States to attract international students from third countries. The study also examines whether Member States have adopted any policies or special incentives to retain international students following their graduation. A key focus of the study is the underlying policy rationale for attracting and retaining international students and whether this is a policy priority in Member States.
