Pakistani Students in UK Will Now Get a 2-Year Work Visa Under New Visa Policy

Under the new proposals for international students visa policy, Pakistani students will be able to stay in the United Kingdom for a period of two years after graduation.

The UK Home Office has relaxed the visa policy to accommodate international students who were previously allowed to look for a job in the UK within 4 months of passing out from bachelors or masters degree programs.

UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, believes that the new policy will enable students to find careers in the UK and ‘unlock their potential’. The current visa policy for international students was formulated by Theresa May who was the Home Minister back in 2012.

The Department of Education aims to increase the number of international students from 460,000 to 600,000 in the next 10 years.

There is no limit on the number of international students that can study in the UK.

The new policy will come into effect starting next year and it comes as good news for students from across the globe who will now have more opportunities in the UK.

    While the news is being celebrated across campuses and even by prospective students, for many of those who graduated between 2012 and 2020, it has come too late.
