UK: CURBS ON STUDENT VISAS AND JOBS RIGHTS UNVEILED
Britain’s coalition government has unveiled its proposals for clamping down on student visas and employment rights and is putting them out for consultation until the end of January.
The measures include raising the English language competency requirement, stricter limits on non-EU international students’ entitlement to work and their dependants’ entitlement to work during the period of study, restrictions on graduates staying on to work, and tighter visa application procedures for extending periods of study. Tens of thousands of students will no longer be able to stay on in the country while looking for skilled work.
