Applications for a student visa in the UK to its lowest level in nine years located,Immigration dropped over the long term in the UK by foreign students to its lowest level since 2007, pointing out that the stringent restrictions have had an impact.
This has been observed in the lower numbers of migration of people from outside the European Union, according to figures published by the Office for National Statistics in the United Kingdom. The numbers for this year decreased by six percent to 222,609 in March. Applications dropped to further study in other educational institutions by 16 percent to 20,770 in the year to March. Three percent drop in visa applications in independent schools to 13951 has been observed.
This is a result of the rules, which were introduced in 2011 to put an end to violations of the student visa. This, in turn, made it difficult for educational institutions to take care of foreign nationals from outside the European Union. People were opposed to this policy from the point of view that more stringent anti-immigration stance and deter students a real high quality from coming to the UK.
At the same time, others have been discouraged from applying for visas to enter the United Kingdom because of the changes that were made in 2012, which prevents them from staying for longer periods and work for two years after graduation are finished.
These numbers can become a cause of concern for the educational institutions in the United Kingdom, which is witnessing a decline in the numbers of foreign students, so that there is a growing market for overseas students outside the United Kingdom globally.
James Pittman, Division Managing Director of the Group Study of Higher Education, said that the fall was significant as the number of students from outside the EU who want to study abroad is growing at a rate of at least six percent annually.
When countries such as Australia and the launch of a new student strategies abroad, Britain indiscreetly been tightened visa regulations and employment opportunities.
Most affected by these rules students said that they are citizens of India, Iraq, Nigeria, Libya and others.
