Students from colleges and universities all over the UK have walked out in protest to show their anger and frustration against the government policies on the immigration issue.
Changes to the rules would mean that the normal student visa which is applied by the many students had been minimized from three to two years.
This change will affect the students as would be forced to return back home even before they apply for the different visa.
According to the Vice Chancellor, Essex University, Professor Antony Forster, it was significant for everyone to get the opportunity of taking part in peaceful protest on Tuesday.
He also said that the University of Essex is one of the most popular foreign universities in the UK
and it is ranked in top ten universities of the world. The university has around 140 countries representing within the staff and student community and it enriches the community and also provide a valuable contribution to the success of the university, in terms of research, education and experience of the student, that we pride ourselves on providing that.
He told that it is rightly that the University of Essex support and advocates this issue and that we shall speak out in support of internationalization.
Students from Manchester and Glasgow also stormed out of their classes for walking through their local streets with banners and flyers in their hands, protesting against the government’s decision.
