UK Reintroduces PSW Visa

In a move that could be the game changer for Indian students going to Britain for studying as the UK Government on 11 September announced the reintroduction of the two-year post-study work (PSW) visa, expanding opportunities for talented international students to build successful careers in the country.


This change in Immigration Policy rolls back the scrapping of the post study work visa by then Home Secretary Theresa May in 2012; a move that has been seen as the main reason for the drop in the number of Indian students going to study in the UK and the country losing out its competitive edge as an international market for higher education.
 
UK Home Secretary Priti Patel said in a statement "The new Graduate Route will mean talented international students, whether in science and mathematics or technology and engineering, can study in the UK and then gain valuable work experience as they go on to build successful careers”.
 
“It demonstrates our global outlook and will ensure that we continue to attract the best and brightest,” she added.
 
The new "Graduate" Route, to be launched for the 2020-21 intake of students to university, will be open to all international students -  including those from India - who have valid UK immigration status as a student and have successfully completed a course of study in any subject at the undergraduate level or above at an approved UK higher education provider.
 
The visa will allow eligible students to work, or look for work, in any career or position of their choice, for two years after completing their studies.
 

"This is fantastic news for Indian students, who will now be able to spend more time in the UK after completing their degree, allowing them to gain further skills and experience," said Dominic Asquith, British High Commissioner to India.

This announcement follows the creation of a new fast-track visa route for scientists and the removal of the limit on PhD students moving into the skilled work visa route, which collectively aim to cement the UK as a science superpower and a world leader in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) sector.

Almost half of all Indian students (almost 130,000 since 2008-09) heading to the UK in the last ten years chose a STEM subject.

Indian students coming to study in the UK reached almost 22,000 in the year ending June 2019.

This was a 42 per cent increase on the previous year - and almost 100 per cent higher than three years ago.
