Foreign students can now work in UK after graduation — Boris Johnson
The British Government has said that international students will henceforth be able to stay and work in the UK after graduating.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the new immigration route for international students was part of making Britain “open to the brightest and best from across the globe.”
The new post-study work visa will come into effect for students starting courses at undergraduate level or above in 2020, and is open to graduates in any subject and for jobs in any sector.
“International students are vital for our country and provide some of the most crucial skills we need across our workforce,” they said.
He added: “Not only will a wide range of employers now benefit from access to talented graduates from around the world, these students hold lifelong links with the UK with a recent study showing 77 per cent of graduates want to retain business links with us and 88 per cent would return for tourism.”Read more: The Punch Newspapers
