Foreign students are to be banned from working in Britain under a fresh crackdown on immigration ordered by Home Secretary Theresa May PHOTO: MAIL ONLINE


British Home Secretary Theresa May on Saturday announced foreign students will not be allowed to work in the United Kingdom and will be forced to leave the country once their courses end.

As per a new policy proposed by the British Home Office, foreign students will be barred from applying for a visa extension once their course finishes and will have to return home before reapplying for a job.


The rules are being tightened after Home Office officials detected an increased fraud at certain publicly funded colleges and immigration advisers advertising college visas as a way to work in the UK.


Ministers are of the opinion that the new policy will ensure colleges are not used as back door to a British visa. Further, the policy is not applicable to European Union students.


According to official figures, 121,000 non-EU students entered the UK in the 12 months to June last year but only 51,000 left, a net influx of 70,000.


The government estimated that the number of foreign students entering the UK will sisignificantly rise to more than six per cent a year up to 2020.

The British home secretary has also taken action against 870 fake colleges and banned them from taking foreign students.

Immigration Minister James Brokenshire said it was part of our plan to control immigration for the benefit of Britain.

Immigration offenders want to sell illegal access to UK jobs market and there are plenty of people willing to buy. Hardworking taxpayers who are helping to pay for publicly funded colleges expect them to be providing top class education, not a back door to a British work visa, he continued.


Business Secretary Sajid Javid also signalled on Friday that the govermment would stop the education system being abused by immigrants.


What we need to make sure is that our immigration system allows those from abroad that want to come to Britain to study in our world-class universities, our fantastic colleges to come here, he said.


But weve also got to have a system that doesnt allow any abuse when people are using the right to study as a way to achieve settlement in Britain. So weve got to break the link and make sure its focused on people who want to study and then, once theyve had their studies and completed that, then they leave, Javid added.


However, universities are worried the policy could damage the sector and businesses have also warned that the move could deprive Britain of vital skills.

Foreign students have far better choices available like USA , CANADA , AUSTRALIA NEW ZEALAND ETC since UK has lost its credibility as a quality education provider any way .

most of student from Pakistan and South Asia go there primarily for work .
If they will not allow to work why would someone bother to pay 10 to 20 more than in their own country for the same course

This is happening because of miss-use of the system by fraudsters, at the same time legal firms also be stopped giving false hope to immigrants for making money.

No, I won PhD fellowship by own, funded by Harper Adams University.
I was working as Veterinary Officer (BPS-17) in L&DD Punjab and right now on ex-Pak leave without pay.

That's why I did not go to UK they just have problems with international students. Most of them do not even get jobs months after they graduate although Britain has some of the best universities like imperial, ucl , Lse ( sorry Oxbridge fellows,Oxford and Cambridge are just producing aggrogant nerds).
Canada and Australia are a better options and U.S. is an other story at undergrad level.

Good enough , BPS-17 job is waiting for you and with a Phd it may be better even.
My advice for you go back after your study .
But for others those who have no job waiting in Pakistan they MUST try in England once they complete their study.

Pakistanis will even try to escape to Ireland many of them are trying already but UKBA and irish authorities are also clamping these measures down furthermore Cameron has promised that he will share the data of undocumented people with Ireland in order to identify where they are coming from.

The arrogance of Tories will come to bite them for sure. They have to fix the quality and standard of their educational institutes which is steeply deteriorating for the past few years. Creating high end economic sectors will boost UKs stagnant economy and thus could also create reactionary forces to pin down inflation.

But in the presence of the immigrants of Eastern Europe they can afford to act smugly towards the Non-European immigrant students. The better options for the students of Pakistan are to opt for Australian / Kiwi universities as they have slightly better opportunities for students and graduates.

So right Hawk Bhai, for every job now there are tens of East European specially Romanians
I think focus is not on employment for locals as they don't even bother to apply for these jobs
they are concerned about changing demography and ethnicity including religion for the long run
English population growth is almost zero, Bengalis about 4 percent on average, Pakistani / Indian / Somali around 3
so they need Eastern Europeans who like to have children and they will merge in the society rather well ...
