Number of Indian applicants for education in UK increases post Visa Policy Changes

As we know, the UK Tier 4 Visa has been reintroduced with changes in Post study Work. Prospective students planning to study in UK will be allowed to stay and work for up to two years after they graduate. The Government has said international students enrolling in the 2020/21 academic year will benefit. The new route will also allow graduates to ‘switch’ to the Tier 2 skilled worker visa, under which they can find a sponsor and a role that meets the requirements. Employers are also expected to move quickly to adjust their entry-level recruitment and graduate programs to take full advantage of the new rule.

There has been a 63% increase in the number of student visas issued to Indians for study in UK in the last one year, data released by UK’s Office for National Statistics (ONS) shows. The statistics, published on November 28, shows that over 30,550 Indian students applying for higher education in UK received tier-4 (study) visa for the year ended September 2019 compared with 18,730 in the previous year. This was the largest number of grants to Indian students in UK since 2011. Overall, it is estimated that more than 1 in 5 of all UK visas go to Indian students and 90% of Indian applications are successful. Indian nationals also accounted for nearly 51% of all tier-2 visas granted globally – with over 56,000 Indians graduates receiving skilled work visas in the reporting period.
