Student Visa System disapproved by the politicians in United Kingdom
Politicians strongly oppose the extraordinary student visa system
After a series of disasters happening at various Universities in UK, now the politicians are strongly opposing the “student visa system”.
The world has seen the indecisive fate of students enrolled at London Metropolitan University, which has been closed down after UKBA’s investigation. A special task force has been set up to relocate these students at various other universities. Those who would not be relocated within 60 days will be deported back to their home countries. However, the ticking of the clock for “60 days” has not been started yet.
The politicians are strongly in opposition to the “extra ordinary” immigration policy due to which about 50,000 migrants have entered Britain under “student visa.”
New overseas student visa rules were imposed in 2009 which according to a report had no control on the entry of students with false documents. Migrants took advantage of the loopholes and entered the nation posing them to be students.
In 2009 UKBA had given the responsibility to the universities and colleges to check if the international students are complying with the laws of the nation or not.
Experts express that this poor planning of entrusting the Universities rather than department and its officials to keep a check on the immigrant students has led to the disaster. In fact, border officers had even lost the control of spot checking and interviewing anyone who was entering the country.
UKBA responded quite sluggishly to the whole issue and even now when it is supposedly rolling up it sleeves, it has been done at a wrong time when many students at LMU are only a few months away from completing their course. There are many who have spent lot of money to come here and have arrived here very recently.
UKBA unrevealed that students at LMU could not even converse properly in English. In fact during inspection most of them were not even present in their respective classes. The story does not stop here; many of the students had cross passed their permit to stay and were still living there.
The illegitimate students have thrown a big problem to the legitimate ones too.
Politicians feel that UKBA should have acted at an appropriate time an in appropriate manner.
