UK all set to roll back tough student visa rules

Published On: 09 Jul 2012

 | Last Updated On: 09 Jul 2012

David Cameron, British Prime Minister has decided to ease the stringent visa norms imposed by the British government on international students majority of which are Indian and Chinese students. The decision was taken after it was reported that the strict student visa rules could endanger the £8 billion annual income of UK generated from foreign students. As a result of stringent visa rules the number of applications has declined for the academic session starting next autumn.

The PM’s office reported that there are possibilities, that student from outside European Union specifically from India may drop their plan to Study in UK if too many migration barriers are imposed on them.

A liberal democrat, Cable and the universities minister of conservative party under him, David willets stated that adding foreign students in migration statistics is not correct particularly because most of them leave Britain post study sooner or later.

The Conservatives with the Liberal Democrats now in office made a policy before 2010 general election of declining net migration to less than 100,000 annually.

One in every postgraduate or undergraduate student in the UK is international with India second only to China providing the main source of income. The Britain has scrapped post-study visas as a result of which students outside EU having enough funds to pay their fee for course in the UK are deterred to do so.

Germany, which a less costly, high quality study abroad destination is also attracting many Indians, thus posing a threat of competition to institutes in Britain.
