UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the return of a two-year work visa after studying for international students.
According to BBC news, the new immigration route announced on Wednesday means that graduates in any subject can stay in the UK again for two years to find work after graduation.
Currently, most international students who read the degree and the master can only stay and work for four months.
The measure revokes a decision taken in 2012 by internal secretary Theresa May, who abolished the two-year work visa after the study that made Britain an attractive place for international students, saying it was “too generous”.
This led to a sharp decline in the number of students going to Britain.
The new immigration route will be available to international students who have successfully completed a course in any subject at university or higher level at a higher education institution that has a proven track record in defending immigration controls and other rules for Studying in UK.
In addition, students must leave level 4 at the point where the path is entered. This includes students starting courses in 2020/21 at university level or above.
The new course allows eligible students to work or look for work, at any skill level, for two years after graduating before having to convert to another visa or having to leave the country.
According to the Prime Minister, this change would see students “unlock their potential” and begin careers in the UK.
