UK new visa rules hits Indian and non-European students

The UK’s new visa rules are causing tremors among the students from India as well as on non-European students. As the students pursuing their courses in British colleges will be prohibited to take any work during their period of the study course in the UK.

Home office officials say that the new rules are to ensure immigrant students to not use their visa for back door entry to the UK job market.

The new rules will apply only to those education colleges delivering vocational courses or the courses readying students to get university course. These new rules will not apply to universities.

Once the rules are introduced in parliament, the new restrictions will come into force from the month of August. Universities will not come under these rules.

The rules recommend students not only to be barred from working but will also cut the educational course visa to two years from previous three years. With that students can not to extend their visa and leave the country immediately after completing their studies.

UK immigration minister James Brokenshire says, from the next month onwards students outside of European Union who studies at public funded colleges in Britain will lose their right to work of up to 10 hours a week. Immigrant offenders are creating illegal access to enter in Britain job market; there are also people willing to buy. 

These changes are to protect the United Kingdom reputation and its excellence in education, by preventing the abuse in the visa system, added Brokenshire.
