Britain will increase the number of foreign students to 30% after Brexit

KIEV. March 16. UNN. The number of foreign students at British universities are planning to increase by 30% over the next decade, suggesting the best visa conditions for young people from other countries. It is reported by UNN with reference to the Guardian.

The Ministry of education and the Ministry of international trade has prepared a new educational strategy according to which the number of foreign students at British universities will increase from 460 000, including nearly 140,000 from the EU, up to 600,000 by 2030.

This is an ambitious goal, given that EU students will face higher tuition fees and will lose access to student loans after Brexit.

Foreign students will be given a visa extension of one year to find work in the UK as part of a package of government measures to increase the number of foreign students.

The government will also consider the question “how to improve the visa process for applicants and to support the employment of students”, hinting at another possible change in migration policy.

Foreign students make a huge contribution to the UK economy. Their presence in the country is estimated at 26 billion pounds (34 billion dollars) in the form of direct and indirect effect that provides more than 200,000 jobs in all parts of the UK.

Currently, the undergraduate and master’s students can stay in the UK until four months after graduation, doctors of science – to a year.

We will remind, the British Parliament voted for the government proposal to postpone the withdrawal from the EU – a Brexit – at a later date
