Ministers reverse May-era student visa rules

Under the new proposals announced by the Home Office, International students will be allowed to stay in the UK for two years after graduation to find a job. It is a real win for international students and the UK economy.

A decision made in 2012 by then- Home Secretary Theresa May (ex-Prime minister) that forced overseas students to leave four months after finishing a degree. 

However, the change will apply to international students in the UK- who start courses at undergraduate level or above from next year onwards. Under the proposals, there is no restriction on the kinds of jobs students would have to seek and no cap on numbers.

If you are a student and would like to discuss the new proposal in detail then call our expert immigration Solicitor, Mr Maqbool Malik, Mr Javed Akbar at Manchester or call our expert immigration Solicitor in London or Chester branch.
