New UK student visa regulations introduced to cut abuse

[DailyMirror, Tuesday, 14 February 2012 08:54 No Comment]

The British High Commission issuing a press release today stated that the new visa regulations for students “will cut abuse”. New Visa regulations introduced last year would be in force from April 2012. The Immigration minister Damien Green has stated that the new visa regulations “ will cut abuse of the student visa route and ensure only the brightest and the best students can stay and work in the UK,”

The current Post Study Work route, which allows students to work in the UK for two years after their studies have finished, will close. Talented international students graduating from a university will still have the opportunity to stay on in the UK, but from 6 April they will need a skilled job offer from a reputable employer accredited by the UK Border Agency with a salary of £20,000 or more.
