Good News from UK: Students may no longer be counted in the ‘permanent’ migrants says UK Minister Osborne

Students immigration to UK to gets easier

10 Downing Street brings to us some news that may potentially change immigration laws for students who wish to migrate to the United Kingdom. In light of recent migrant influx into Western Europe which has brought the topic of illegal immigration into the spotlight, it might seem like legal migration will take a hit. However, the opposite seems to be the case based on UK Chancellor George Osborne’s statement.

UK Citizens prefer students

Newspapers and news channels in UK have noted that the public is concerned with ‘permanent’ migrants coming into UK’s economy. Their concern is with the illegal migrants coming in from Europe. Osborne in response has indicated that students may be excluded from the declared migrants list. In addition, he shot down proposals for tougher language and greater saving requirements for student visa applications.

UK’s economy is dependent on students

This is good news as entry requirements to the UK will remain the same. Also, as non-permanent migrants, students will be a welcome as this will bring in more revenue and can shorten the gap in the temporary / part-time employment industry. This change will save millions of pounds in fee income for the government and this news was welcomed by local businesses.

Dependent of students may be allowed to work

In lieu of this, a statement by the Treasury in August planned to increase student migration by 55,000. In addition, dependence of post-graduate students will have the right to work in Britain. Another positive probability from the Treasury says that between now and 2020; 1.34 million jobs are expected to be created. But only student migration can support this claim by treasury.

UK – a good option for student immigration

The next few years will see the UK coming out with attractive policy changes for students to maintain its economic growth. So, don’t count UK of your immigration list just yet as the future, especially for Indian students, looks to be on the right track.

  1. Does this tantamount to an Indian wishing to settle in UK might have a hard hit? Or is it virtually impossible to migrate to UK?

    • Immigration rules & laws for any country might look stringent however, this is just to make things better for their country.

      This is an announcement, which might be applicable in future, however, this is a prompt decision by the U.K authority to stop illegal immigration which is hitting the economy of this country & also to promote legal migration which inturn would benifit the U.K Economy.

      Indians will for sure be at advantage of this opportunity.
