New plans formalised by the UK government have revealed that international students who have completed a bachelor’s, master’s, or PhD in the UK will be allowed to stay in the country longer after completion of their programme.
Vivienne Stern, director of Universities UK International, said: “UK universities would be pleased to see the announcement clearly recognises the important contributions that international students make to the country. Allowing graduates to stay on for longer to find work in the UK sends the message that international students are welcome here, and we value the skills they bring.”

My counsellor contacted me every day throughout the application process and helped me receive an unconditional offer. I am so grateful to SI-UK and will never forget them. I will study very hard as I feel this is the best reward I can give the whole team.
