UK - No longer a favourite among Indian students!

Recent reports by the Office of National Statistics (ONS) prove that there is a shocking decline in the number of Indian and Pakistani students opting to study in the United Kingdom. Over the past few years the numbers have gone done from one lakh students to 35,000.

Officials from the House of Lords committee state that the main reasons for this would be the country's strict immigration procedures, ever-changing visa laws, higher fees and the disagreeable atmosphere towards international students in UK.

According to a survey conducted among students, they say that fact restrictions have been imposed on doing part-time jobs while doing the courses is a prime concern among students. The difficulty in procuring employment visas for the students to stay on and work after the completion of the course is another major road block.

The UK officials claim that stricter visa policies were introduced so that there would be a decrease in the number of fake applicants and for those staying on after their visa had expired. But these changes seem to have brought about an adverse effect in attracting students from Commonwealth countries, as they seem to be opting for more welcoming countries like US, Australia and Canada, where the rules for visas and work seem to be more relaxed.
