The UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has announced the return of the two-year post-study work visa for international students.
According to BBC news, the new immigration route announced on Wednesday means that graduates in any subject will once again be able to stay in the UK for two years to find work after they graduate.
Currently, most international students reading bachelor’s and master’s degrees can stay and work for only four months.
The move reverses a decision made in 2012 by the home secretary Theresa May, who abolished the two-year post-study work visa that had made Britain an attractive place for international students, saying it was ‘too generous’.
That led to a sharp drop in students going to Britain.
