Foreign Students will be Barred from Working while Studying in Britain and Forced to Leave the UK Upon Completion of their Course!
According to MailOnline, non-EU students, who are foreigners in the UK will reportedly be banned from working in Britain following a fresh crackdown on immigration ordered by Home Secretary Theresa May.
According to the report, when the foreign students complete their courses, they will have to leave the country before reapplying to return for a job. Ministers believe the new rules, which will apply to all those from outside the European Union, will stop colleges being used as a ‘back door to a British work visa’.
Official figures show that 121,000 non-EU students entered the UK in the 12 months to June last year, but only 51,000 left, which means that about 70,000 graduates stayed back in the country.
The government further estimated that the number of foreign students coming to the UK will rise by more than 6 per cent a year up to 2020. Home Secretary Theresa May has also taken action against 870 bogus colleges, banning them from taking foreign students.
The Conservatives have vowed to go even further, as they plan to stop student visas being used as an easy way to enter the UK before getting a job and claiming benefits.
