London: More than half of migrant students in Britain have said they have felt `less welcome` in the country because of policies on migration, a new survey has found.

The survey conducted of more than 500 overseas students across 105 institutions revealed that 52 percent had a negative perception of the attempts to cut migration numbers.

The poll found that almost half of North American students in the UK shared this concern.

According to the BBC, the survey of attitudes of overseas students in the UK was commissioned by Regent`s University in London.
The survey showed that while students felt that migration targets have made them feel less welcome, they had a positive feeling about their experience in the UK.

About four in five students felt positively about the quality of their courses and teaching and almost nine in 10 would recommend studying in the UK, the report added.
