Although, the task may not be an easy one, however, the Association of UK Private Schools and Colleges must be given permission to seek a High Court review of the UK student visa rules, stated Judge Charles George QC.
Private colleges up in arms against new UK student visa rules—The move to significantly reduce UK student visas has been refuted by the Private colleges of the UK.
Although, the UK Home Secretary has stated the reason for reducing UK student visas as indispensable for the UK, the colleges say the move is not only highly disproportionate and arbitrary but also quite severe. Judge George also informed that the association is allowed to seek a review from the high court.
The Association of UK Private Schools and Colleges does has an appropriate case for seeking a review, the judge added at hearing of a preliminary high court. He, however, did not rule out the possibility of difficulties lying ahead for the heads of the UK colleges.
May crackdown aimed to attract only the best in the UK--It may be mentioned that the UK Home Secretary Theresa May had announced that international students wanting to come to the UK for studying here will find it harder following tougher UK student visa rules along with clampdown on fake colleges in the UK.
May says the UK government aims to bring down the UK student visas by nearly twenty-five percent, which means a cut of around 70,000-80,000 in the issuance of UK student visas each year. This is to bring sanity to the UK immigration policy for international students, she added.
She asserted that the new move will prevent fake or bogus international students from coming and studying in bogus UK colleges. This will, in turn, save the top-class educational institutes, she argued.
The new rules will aim to curb the growing incidences of misuse of the UK student visa rules and will reintroduce some sort stability to the UK student visa rules, she maintained.
