The United Kingdom has concluded plans to implement a new immigration policy that will see foreign students leave the country after completion of their studies.
According to Daily Mail, Foreign students are to be banned from working in Britain under a fresh crackdown on immigration ordered by Home Secretary Theresa May.
British Ministers embraced the new rules, which will apply to all those from outside the European Union, as they concluded that it will stop colleges being used as a ‘back door to a British work visa’.
The new rules, state that a non-EU students will be denied the right to work while in the UK and will not be able to apply for a visa extension when their course finishes.
Students will have to leave the country before applying to return under a work visa.
The length of stay is also expected to be cut to two years when the plans are unveiled this week.
Reacting to the development, universities have warned that any clampdown could damage the sector and business leaders are also wary of the move, warning it could rob Britain of vital skills.
