visa reforms on the horizon for international students?

good news on the horizon for international students

Visa in passport

Bright World, like many UK companies, sole traders, colleges and schools is reliant on international students for our success. We are, therefore, thankful to this awesome group of organisations for lobbying for a more straightforward immigration system for international students wishing to study in the UK. 

A recent article in the Study Travel Magazine by Senior Editor, Bethan Norris talks about the difficulties currently faced by students applying for UK visas:

Alistair Jarvis, Chief Executive of Universities UK, said, “We know that the UK ranks first for satisfaction overall amongst international students studying here compared to other major destinations, but our offer to them is being held back by longstanding and uncompetitive policy barriers. It is time to correct these. In any post-Brexit immigration system, the student experience should not be significantly different for international students than for UK students and we will continue to push government to ensure that this is recognised.”

Below is a copy of the document Student Visa System: Principles to Reform, outlining the 5 principles that should underpin the new system. This is a briefing document aimed at the government setting out demands to visa reform jointly produced by Universities UK, Guild HE, MillionPlus, the Russell Group, University Alliance and UKCISA.
