Good News For Potential International Students In UK

The educational system in the UK has been reasonably accepting towards foreign students despite the high tuition fees.

One of the biggest obstacles for an international student was to find a job in the UK after graduation.

This was mainly because of the visa regulations that forced the student to leave the country immediately after finishing. Now, the government made a recent change in the system.

The announcement from the government on September 11th stated that a new type of visa is under development.

 

MORE CAREER & EDUCATIONS

The post-study visa will be valid for two years, allowing international students to get hired more efficiently and without any hassle during the application process.

Students from Europe, Asia, and Africa, are particularly happy about this announcement because this makes the job hunt much more comfortable and opens a gate for permanent immigration.

The Indian student population is the highest among all the nations, so it is expected that the visa will help them the most.

The new regulation will benefit not only international students but also employers. 

Prior to the visa, a company would think twice before hiring an international student due to the expenses of providing sponsorship and the high salary threshold requirement.

In other words, many talented students would be rejected just because of their nationality.
The visa will guarantee two years for the students to look for jobs.

The students who will enroll at the UK universities starting in the 2020-21 academic year will be eligible.

UK International Students Can stay 2 years

This creates an issue, as the current international students will be excluded from this opportunity.

Many students, especially those from India, have created petitions to demand that the visa regulations include the current students. On petition has already collected over 6000 signatures.

The Home Office made a follow-up announcement to make things clear. Anyone who is enrolled at a university at the time when the new route is introduced will be eligible to apply regardless of when they were registered.

For instance, a student who was enrolled in 2018 and will have graduated from an undergraduate course in 2021 will be able to apply.

On the other hand, a student who will graduate in 2019 or 2020 won’t be eligible.

The confusion about the timing of the new visa has left many students distraught. Many of them are trying to defer their admissions to the 20-21 academic year.

 

Those who can afford to pay an extra year of studies are trying to extend their studies to avoid early graduation.

Nevertheless, the post-study visa will impact many lives in the next few years.

There are three characteristics of China’s airlines flying long-haul: first is the role of government pushing and often subsidising routes, even on outbound-heavy leisure flights, such as to Europe. There are some elements of a herd mentality: witness China Southern expanding in North America after Air China. And then there is domination: China Southern in a few years became a common name inAustralia while Air China will soon have three daily flights between Beijing and Los Angeles.

Chinese airlines have grown in Australia, North America and Europe. The missing continent in their growth story is Africa (South America will be only a small component).

Chinese airlines have come and gone in Africa, but 2015 should cement efforts to link Africa with China. China Southern will open a service to Nairobi, in addition to Air China’s previously announcedJohannesburg service. For the airlines, Africa will be a very different market from Australia, Europe and North America. It will not be as big or sustainable, but it will now start to grow after many quiet years, with strong overtones of trade flows… Full Story here
