UKs proposed Immigration changes to benefit Overseas Students

Student Visa Eligibility For Overseas Education In UK

The UK government is expected to change the rules for immigration in a way that makes it easier for Overseas Students to obtain work in the country, in a move that signals a major shift in the approach towards a more welcoming stance.

The proposed changes include plans to allow students who pursue Overseas Education in UK to be eligible for switching to a Skilled Worker Visa as soon as they have completed their selected course rather than waiting for their degree to be awarded were detailed in Budget documents published on 22 November.

There have also been few suggestions from certain factions sector that the Home Office is planning to take a new stance with regards to students who come to UK for Overseas Education.

The home office is expected to extend a pilot scheme that eases visa rules for students who are applying for Overseas Education to Masters Courses at the prestigious Universities of Cambridge, Bath, Oxford, and Imperial College London.

According to the Red Book of the budget the government will be changing immigration rules to enable world-leading scientists who are endorsed under the Tier 1 pathway for applying for settlement after three years in UK and speed up the process for Highly Skilled Students who pursue Overseas Education in UK to apply to work in the country after they finish their degrees and reduce the bureaucratic delays in hiring international researchers by relaxing the test for labour market and allowing the UKs research councils to sponsor researchers.

Effect Of Proposed Changes To Overseas Education Students

The proposed changes will allow Students to Apply for and obtain a Tier 2 Skilled Worker Visa as soon as they complete their course or after writing their final exam instead of having to wait until they have received their degree. The change is thought to be in response to universities feedback to the Home Office that the present rules are causing difficulties for Post Graduate Students.

In another move, the change to the Exceptional Talent scheme will cut down two years from the five-year wait faced by students currently for eligibility for settlement. The legislation for changes in the rules of immigration is expected to be scheduled in the spring.

A spokesman for Universities in UK has hailed the positive changes for both staff recruitment and the improved speed for students to take up work after completion of their studies. The spokesperson hoped that in the coming months the government would further commit to a strategy for growing the number of students seeking Overseas Education in United Kingdom.

Different Stances On Immigration

Different sectors in the United Kingdom sectors can take different stances on immigration, with some lobbying for a light touch with regards to EU nationals for tier 2 and tier 4 visa, while some are expected to lobby for alternative ways for EU citizens.

The Tier 2 Visa Requires employers to register and maintain salary thresholds, which may restrict the ability of EU students to stay on in the United Kingdom and seek work after graduating.

Studying in an Indian college leads to a lower average salary than earned by our western counterparts. This salary sets the tone for all future promotions since companies often look at your previous salaries during compensation appraisals. Additionally, most senior positions tend to be scooped up by individuals who have an international outlook through global exposure.  Finally, studying in a foreign country is an incredible learning experience helping students get a better academic as well as soft skill development.

Canada has been one of the market leaders in education for decades. However, what currently sets Maple Country apart is immigration. Canada is wholeheartedly inviting students to study in their universities to fill job vacancies that are always growing in the country.

We get this question a lot. Many candidates know which career path they want to take, but are at a loss for how to take that journey. Understanding the job role and the industry that you want to get into is the first step to picking the right university.

Carefully consider the immigration options of the country that the university that you are considering is in. This is more important when you intend to stay back in the country after the completion of your course.

Also, review the placement history of the university as well.

The first step is to list your preferences. By listing your preferences and strengths, describe your course of preference. Extensive research on the modules, software and its length for your preferred subject is necessary.
