Updates for International Students
Details have just been announced of a super priority visa service which will allow frequent travellers from India to have their visas processed in just one day.
In December 2012, the Home Secretary, Ms Teresa May, spoke about changes to the Immigration Rules which would allow PhD graduates to apply for a further 12 months' leave to remain in the UK with permission to work. She also said that 1000 additional places would be created for MBA graduates to remain in the UK for 12-24 months under the Tier 1 Graduate Entrepreneur Scheme.
Further details about these changes were announced yesterday in a UKBA briefing to sector representatives at Universities UK in London. The changes will come into effect in April 2013.

In a speech today, the Home Secretary, Theresa May, announced that from April 2013, international PhD graduates would be permitted to remain in the UK for a year. Mrs May said: 'In future, all PhD students who have completed their studies will be allowed to stay here for longer to find skilled work or set up as an entrepreneur within the rules. From April, all such students will be allowed to stay in Britain for twelve months after they have completed their PhD before having to find a job or start a business'.
She also said that the Government wanted to 'build on to build on the principle of appealing to exceptionally talented people, so I intend to add a further 1,000 places a year for MBA graduates who want to stay in Britain and start up businesses'. It is not yet known if this will be applied to MBA graduates from all institutions.
