UK Immigration News

In a major decision that’s likely to brighten the prospects of Indian students seeking higher education in the United Kingdom, the Britain deputy prime minister Nick Clegg has said that he may ask the government to review its immigration policy, if necessary.

In an interview to an Indian daily, Clegg said that he would soon visit the universities in Delhi and Mumbai to interact with the students. He has also said that he wouldn’t show reluctance to make changes to the existing immigration policy after interaction with students later this month.

It has to be mentioned here that at least £17bn is generated by the UK universities every year out of which they receive £10bn from overseas students alone. Now that Britain has seen a steep decline in the flow of Indian students to UK, the government has apparently pulled up sox.

Britain deputy prime minister, in an interview to an Indian newspaper, has mentioned that he would be coming to India later this month and interacting with students in Delhi and Mumbai over relaxing immigration rules proposal.
