UK PSW Update - relief to students?

 Andrew Humphrey, the immigration adviser who spoke recently at International Futures, has confirmed that the proposed scrapping of the Post-Study Work visas will not be taking place.

The announcement came on March 16, 2011 from the UK Borders Agency. In their Statement of Changes, page 57 , it confirms at para 7.9
"No changes, other than those set out in 7.16 and 7.17 below, are being made to the Tier 1 (Post-Study Work) category, which caters for international graduates who have studied in the UK and wish to work following their graduation."

This will be a major relief to many students who were concerned they would not be able to apply to work in the UK after graduating. It also means that international students remain attractive to employers. Please continue to monitor the UKCISA website for any future changes to the immigration rules that may affect student visa holders and applications for Tier 1 Post Study Work.  See www.ukcisa.org.uk.
