The Universities UK action group has revealed on 2 November 2011 that there has been a major setback for international students studying in the UK. There has already been 11,000 cut backs in the number of students coming to UK to study and over 450 colleges across Britain have pulled out in sponsoring international students due to the tougher enforcement regulations, which has been put in place to reduce visa abuse.
More than 450 pre-degree colleges lost their licence to enrol international student because they did not meet the standard regulations of recruiting students, under the new inspection procedure. Some colleges lost that right due to them not applying in time and others had their licence revoked because the UK Border Agency investigated applications from south Asia which were evading the tougher English test.
New UK Border Agency regulations have been introduced raising the standards which education providers must meet to be able to sponsor international students. The new regulations require colleges to sign up to new inspection systems and so far nearly 500 colleges have lost their licence to sponsor international students as they failed to sign up to the new inspection systems.
Previously the Home Office UK Border Agency has investigated 100 colleges and 51 of these colleges licences were revoked. The investigation was prompted after there was a large number of applications made by migrant’s students from countries in South Asia before the English requirements rules were made stricter in April 2011. During this time over 4,500 applications were refused or withdrawn as a result.
On 22 March 2011 The Home Secretary had announced that the UK government shall make plans to change Tier 4 (Student) and Tier 1 (Post Study Work) Migrants. In order to allow sectors to adjust these changes will be introduced over a period of time.
Changes will be implemented from 31 March 2011 including interim measures making changes to the Immigration Rules which will come into effect on 21 April 2011. Further changes will be made to the Immigration Rules to take effect in summer 2011, in April 2012 and the end of 2012.
Please note this is not the definitive guide to the requirements that will apply in the future. The definitive guide shall be set out in the Immigration Rules and the UKBA guidance for Tier 4 applicants and sponsors.
In order to meet the objectives of tackling abuse of migrant student route and the overall reduction of net migration to sustainable levels the government will review the impact of changes and where necessary may make further changes.
So what are the proposed changes?
