Recently, the Boris Johnson government made some changes in the study visa rules for international students to attract many students. As per the new guidelines, international students from various countries, including India, can stay in the UK for two years after completing the course.
Until recently, students were allowed to stay back only for four to six months. The main reason for this change is to attract more students.
Some important things to know about the new visa rule are:
Opportunities offered by the new visa rule:
One of the best parts of this new policy is the prominent stay back opportunity that allows students to stay back upon completion of their course. Furthermore, many students refrained from studying in the UK due to the old policy, while the new system looks promising.
Another significant part of this policy is that it allows students to seek job opportunities. After finding a job, a student can quickly shift to a skilled work segment, which is a pathway to settlement. Due to specific rules and regulations, employers were strict in offering job opportunities. However, the change looks positive now after the implementation of the new law.
Another benefit of this rule is that it doesn’t restrict students to any particular type of job.
Benefits of the new visa rule:
The new visa rule will be implemented from 2020-21, as people need time to adjust to new policies, and at the same time, the government needs to ensure they perform all the changes.
