UK has finally confirms Covid-19 visa adjustment to April 2022 – as Grad route launches
This news is important to the international students who just entered the UK. They will be able to begin their studies only if visa protocols and health department requirements are met although they will still be allowed for work rights after graduating. International students who just joined the university may have started their studies remotely due to the health protocols.
“Those are the rules that relate, for example, to blended learning and distance learning,” Foster clarified, addressing UKCISA Conference delegates. “We are keen to avoid this way a surge of travel in late September, early October, not least given a number of our biggest markets for international students, India, Pakistan and I think Nigeria [Nigeria currently on amber travel list] remain on both the UK government and the devolved administrations read lists which would mean to enter managed hotel quarantine on arrival in the UK.” Foster underlined that the government would encourage students to consider 6 April as a “deadline, not a target for arrival”. “We hope the world will be in a much better position come February and March next year, particularly with vaccination programmes advancing rapidly now in a number in many countries,” he said. “We accept that bringing the concessions to an end in late September would now not be an appropriate decision, given it is inevitable there will be a large number of countries still on both the UK government’s and the devolved administrations red list at the end of September.”
As per the new rules new students who just started their courses in the autumn 2020 or in the spring 2021 must be in the UK by 27th September.
Anne Marie Graham who is the chief executive of UKCISA has presented her point of view on this matter as well. As per her statement they are welcoming the latest developments of UK governments will extend the current time- limited concessions. This will prove to be a big help to those who are planning to study in 2021-22.
These kinds of developments provide a massive support to the international students and also provide power to UKCISA to provide clear guidance and advice to the international students. These new rules will affect the Indian international students in a big way. According to Susan Fang of Oxbridge Holdings Inc., Indian candidates will be more assured to accept places offered.
The graduate route is for those students who have completed their degree in undergraduate or masters. It will provide the students with an opportunity to work or find work without any kind of sponsorship. Foster has also said, “No job offer will be required to qualify for this visa. Someone on the graduate route will be able to work flexibly, switch jobs and develop their careers. As per Foster it will help the students to get work experience and it will also help the economy. They can apply to switch into a permanent job role if their skills are suited for the job. There is relaxation on English Language requirements as they already have proved their capability by being on the student route. Foster has reminded the fellow students that the application only for the graduate route can only be made in the UK only by those with valid student permission.
The design of the Graduate route is done in a way that is simple and straightforward for the students who are willing to use this route. The whole process is streamlined and students can apply once their sponsorship is confirmed and have completed their course.” In these tough times we understand that students need some extra support in terms of scholarships.
