UK Indian students to face heat by the new visa rules

Britain said the Indian students - First time undergraduates students and postgraduates studying in The UK can be allowed to work for twenty hours per week during their term time and for full time in holidays.

With the announcement of series of changes to Tier 4 immigration type, now a student can apply if he/she is 16 years of age or above.

The new rules that prevent students from public funded colleges working will take effect from August. The university students will be allowed to take the new course of study but will be linked to their previous course of study or with the university confirmation.

New rules will prevent college students to extend their tier 4 visa unless studying in an embedding college. It will make the students leave the UK and apply from outside if they want to take up another course.

All the new changes are to break the series of visa abuses by students taking other courses and switching inorder to extend their stay in The UK. We don't want student visa as a backdoor entry for a work visa in the United Kingdom,

the new rules are to ensure competitive offer for students to study in the UK by attracting brightest international students to come and study in the United Kingdom, the changes will not in any way affect students studying in universities or higher level.

All these new rules will affect only non-European students studying in publicly funded colleges. However, the university students will be affected by the rules related to academic progression.
