English Level to be raised

The Home Office in the UK has recently sent a detailed proposal to all Ministers with an aim to increase the level of English needed by students arriving in the UK to Study.

In order for the Govt to reduce the numbers the Student Visa Route will surely be scrutinized thoroughly in particular those Foreign Student Studying at below Degree Level courses.

1 option proposed is to raise the English Level for the Students Studying at below Degree level only, the level at present is set at a score of B1 on the CEFR. The raising of the level to B2 wold basically mean a required level from intermediate to upper-intermediate

The Extended Student Visitor changes are meant to alleviate some of the concern from the English Language Education Sector, these changes allow the student visitor to stay in the UK for up to 11 months BUT this category would not necessarily satisfy all of the industry's requirements.
