An ex­tract from the re­port read: “It has been sug­gested that the level of hous­ing need in Coven­try has been over-es­ti­mated on ac­count of in­ac­cu­ra­cies in record­ing the num­ber of stu­dents ar­riv­ing and leav­ing the city.”

It added: “There is no clear ev­i­dence of an un­der-record­ing of out-mi­gra­tion of in­ter­na­tional stu­dents.

“The ev­i­dence shows that in­ter­na­tional stu­dents are not a par­tic­u­larly sub­stan­tial com­po­nent of over­all in­ter­na­tional mi­gra­tion to the city whilst the age-spe­cific ev­i­dence of in­ter­nal out mi­gra­tion sug­gests stu­dents move to Coven­try but sub­se­quently move else­where within the UK.

“Over­all, pre­dicted fu­ture pop­u­la­tion growth in Coven­try does not look to be er­ro­neous when com­pared to past trends.”
