Fears of Harsher UK STUDENT VISA Rules

With all the recent changes to the Immigration System in the UK it has become one of the most difficult in the world. The Points Based System and Entry Routes for Skilled People ensures that much lower numbers of foreign workers will have the opportunity to apply for taking up work in the UK.

The TIER 4 Student Visa rules are also meant to be changed and many UK Universities and Colleges fear that if the proposed changes come into affect that many International Students will choose other destinations with easier methods of Visa Applications.

America, Australia and Canada for example are becoming more attractive for Potential Students who previously would have only considered the UK.

The Universities face budget cuts and International Student Fees make up an extremely important source of income. Universities will get a chance to air their concerns during the UKBA's Consultation on Student Immigration.
