From the most recent statistics available, in the academic year 2001/02, there were 193,849 full-time and 37,796 part-time undergraduate and post graduate overseas students at UK universities and colleges. It is not possible to determine how many of these students have children because there is no requirement on local education authorities to provide the Department with this information.
