Admission to the university abroad is one of the most exciting moments of one's life. If you have the crucial funding; the tuition, accommodation and maintenance fees sorted, that is even better.
As some of the most popular study destinations, the UK, the US, South Africa, Sweden, Norway and Germany provide elaborate procedures for visa application for students intending to pursue further studies there. Prospective students that meet the requirements will need to prepare themselves for travel to their chosen universities for further studies.
Nowadays, it seems like students are benefited by the new visa rules. British High Commissioner Sir James Bevan on Wednesday stressed the importance in relations between India and Britain and highlighted strides made by the two countries in business, education and trade.
"The bilateral ties between the two countries are old, and we want to strengthen and improve them further. Both countries have made rapid strides in trade and education. This could be improved further", said Bevan.
He further said, "For starters, we have cracked down on bogus institutes. A lot of students who were admitted were not good. That too has been dealt with. Earlier, a student could work at any job after graduation. Now, under the new rules, a student who holds a graduate level job can work for three years and can extend it for another three. We understand the cost of education and living is high, but this will help students get decent jobs and also allow them to work longer in the United Kingdom."
Bevan says, "We want to increase people-to-people contact. That will be done only through more cultural programmes. The British Council which also has their library is active in this regard. There are a lot of companies from Britain that are based in the city and the idea will be to encourage more Indian and Pune-based companies to invest in Britain."
Changes to the Temporary Graduate Visa (subclass 485) from 23 March 2013 says, From 23 March 2013, in response to recommendations four and eight of the Strategic Review of the Student Visa Program 2011 (the Knight Review), new post-study work arrangements will be introduced for graduates of an Australian Bachelor Degree, Masters Degree or Doctorate. The post-study work arrangements are being introduced as a new stream of the existing Temporary Skilled Graduate (subclass 485), which will be renamed the Temporary Graduate Visa (subclass 485).
