Indian Student Body Lobbying in UK for Extension of Post-Study Work Visa

A principal representative of Indian students body in the U.K has begun a campaign with a letter to UK PM Boris Johnson asking on him to assure that the newly published two-year post-study work visa is granted to all foreign students presently studying in the nation. The National Indian Students and Alumni Union UK (NISAU-UK) states that it intends to make the latest Graduate Visa path, declared by the government of UK in the last week, valid from the 2020-2021 group of students had caused notable confusion and unrest among students in the beginning process of the 2019-2020 academic year in this month.

New UK Graduate Visa Path

We know that the Graduate visa path details may still be under progress it would show that students who have begun their studies prior to Sept 2020 may be out of  the scope. It has attained to meaningful unrest and uncertainty among present and students who are coming now for the Sept 2019-2020 academic year, it states.

As one of the bodies of student had strongly lobbied for the post-study visa to be restored, the N.I.S.A.U U.K greeted the government’s announcement of a latest Graduate Visa open to permit qualified students to work, or prominently look for work, in any job or career of their selection, for two years later finishing their studies.

Britain had terminated its post-study two-year work visa proposal during Theresa May’s time as UK's home secretary in the year 2012, widely observed as liable for a significant drop in number of students from nations like India. By declaring the latest Graduate Visa in the previous week, Boris Johnson had dramatically restored the policy dropped by his predecessor and the decision was broadly welcomed by the chiefs of Universities.

Although 82% of graduates from India are happy with their professions wherever they are working, we understand that and they value the chance to spend time in the UK to work following their degree. This new Graduate visa will make it prominently simpler for them to achieve that,” told Vivienne Stern, Universities UK International Director, which had been lobbying for that type of visa from several years.
