They have lost significant revenues from foreign students.

How I wish more students can keep up the pressure and boycott.

They would increase it to a chance at citizenship.

edeXede:
International students will be allowed to stay in the UK for two years after graduation to find a job, under new proposals announced by the Home Office.

The move reverses a decision made in 2012 by then-Home Secretary Theresa May that forced overseas students to leave four months after finishing a degree.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the change would see students "unlock their potential" and begin careers in the UK.

But campaign group Migration Watch called it a "retrograde" step.

Overseas student visa service 'needs fixing'
Australia beats UK for overseas students
University 'still good value for future earnings'
The change will apply to international students in the UK - there were around 450,000 last year - who start courses at undergraduate level or above from next year onwards.

They must be studying at an institution with a track record in upholding immigration checks.

Under the proposals, there is no restriction on the kinds of jobs students would have to seek and no cap on numbers.

"If one needed evidence of a new approach to immigration within government, today's announcement allowing all foreign students to stay for two years after graduation is just that," the BBC's home editor Mark Easton said.

"Where Theresa May introduced what she called a hostile environment around migration rules, with an ambition to reduce net migration to the tens of thousands, Boris Johnson has promised to scrap that target and encourage the "brightest and best" to come and live and work in 'global Britain'."

Chancellor Sajid Javid tweeted that the move was "about time", adding that the government "should have reversed this silly policy years ago".

Former universities minister Jo Johnson - who quit his brother's government last week - tweeted that it was "success at last" after being involved in the cross-party campaign.

Alistair Jarvis, chief executive of Universities UK, welcomed the decision, saying it would benefit the UK economy and reinstate the UK as a "first choice study destination".

"Evidence shows that international students bring significant positive social outcomes to the UK as well as £26bn in economic contributions, but for too long the lack of post-study work opportunities in the UK has put us at a competitive disadvantage in attracting those students," he said.

But Alp Mehmet, chairman of Migration Watch UK, said the decision was an "unwise" step that would "likely lead to foreign graduates staying on to stack shelves".

"Our universities are attracting a record number of overseas students so there is no need to devalue a study visa by turning it into a backdoor route for working here," he added.

Reality Check: Has the 'hostile environment' worked?
Shadow home secretary Diane Abbott said Labour has always said graduates should be able to work here after their studies.

"It enables them to contribute to our economy, our universities and to research, and helps us to attract the brightest and best from around the world.

"It is a great pity that ministers have previously supported measures that did the opposite."

'International collaboration'
The government's announcement coincides with the launch of a £200m genetics project at the UK Biobank, a charity and health resource that contains information and samples from 500,000 people.

The UK Biobank collected DNA samples and health questionnaire information from 500,000 British volunteers over several years and is now open to researchers from anywhere in the world who want to use those resources to develop new treatments for diseases.

The prime minister said projects of this kind wouldn't be possible "without being open to the brightest and the best from across the globe to study and work" in the UK.

Mr Johnson said: "That's why we're unveiling a new route for international students to unlock their potential and start their careers in the UK."

Britain had a "proud history" of being at the centre of international collaboration, he said, adding that it was "bringing together experts from around the globe to work in the UK on the world's largest genetics research project".

The only reason they are reinstating this is because they lost billions of pounds of revenue from foreign students .
Especially from Chinese,Arabs and East Asians.

Job hunting after graduating will now be the koko. Some countries are destined to be successful while some others are mere geographical area. More money for them and more opportunities for foreigners...a win win situation

How are they going to be successful when the country is going to be flooded by desperate cretins who don't have the intelligence to fix their own problems?

eerrr... not really, it would not be as easy as you have claimed.

Remember within that 2 years you would have to pay rent, buy food and other expensis and as the individual you quoted have said, the jobs are not guaranteed, You could still be Jobless in the first 8 months.


Other European countries, US or canada could still deny you visa.

You're in Lagos counting millions, perhaps due to your ignorant of how things work abroad.
It will be gullible for anyone to use Google to determine how much you can earn in another country, without considering many other factors like the bills to be paid, accommodation, taxes, etc...
Life is not a bed of Roses as most Nigerians thought about emigrating abroad.
The reality is quite different when you arrived and for your information, UK is one of the most expensive places to live in the World.

I doubt you can be in the uk for 2 years without securing a job.
Even driving uber/bolt as a last resort in the uk should guarantee you a minimum of N1 million naira net a month.. (please google is your friend).
Err.. it isn't as easy as you have claimed. in the first 8 months you could still be jobless.


To drive uber you need a drivers licence and uber licence and to be able to drive a cab or carry perssengers in England you are required to have driven in England for Atleast 2 years. believe it or not, I know.

You have to work to survive in the UK, that is the reality.There is always work, it now depends on the type. If you are good or at best an above average student you will get an opportunity for a decent job.

I guess they've now seen the light. So they are now going back to the common wealth countries and give those opportunities to them , while those ones pay for it and boost the UK economy. Instead of allowing an hypocritical EU agreement to enjoy those things for free, all in the name of EU citizen.

So it's a win win for UK and commonwealth people.

Decent job? grin what do you mean by a decent Job? there are no such thing as a decent job in the UK.

They need money. That's why England sold their match with kosovo. 5-1 first half, after collecting millions , they allowed kossovo score 2 more goals.

It is still our money we will use to pay the fees. Why can't we fix our education and save this money?

Really? Every country needs money. The rationale behind this policy could be to attract more talents due to pressure from businesses in the UK...especially in the Medical, IT and Engineering sectors.

I won't even comment on your tongue in cheek match fixing allegations.

Well, Rwanda and Botswana can prove you wrong even though they are inconsequential countries in the scheme of things (my opinion).



Britain is class centric and schools that "guarantee" a good job are the Russell Group of Schools. Last I checked, universities can peg fees for international students at whatever they like.

@Topic: While the policy is good, I still won't recommend the UK to anyone cos the fees are high compared to others and the economy isn't burgeoning as before.

Those two countries u mentioned are not close to advancement.. Bowstwana has natural resources but can't turn into finished product. They sell the resources to countries that use them into finished products and still sell back to them the finished products.
