She said that the reputation of the educational institutions in the Scotland spreads far and wide and they are luring the interest of the best and the brightest students from all over the world.
It presents a commercial prospect for the educational institutions of Scotland but also it represents a prospect for Scotland to increase its economic benefits.
Liz told that Scotland should present the students who come to study in Scotland with a great chance to reside and work here in the country. In the past, Scotland had enabled its students from the Scottish Universities to stay and work in Scotland for the period of two years.
The latest post study work chance is now needed that would assist Scotland to get some of its wider foreign ambitions. The more foreign students that come and work in Scotland, the more wider the foreign horizons would be.
Many businesses would be able to obtain valuable skilled employees with an overseas outlook and more. The increasing number of businesses in Scotland has recognized the benefits that the foreign students could bring to them.
All this is about making best utilization of the Scottish educational institutions for strengthening and meeting the economic requirement of the country. It also helps to develop the indigenous talents and to equip those who come to study in Scotland with the means of building and continuing a lifetime relationship with Scotland.
