Immigration Minister Damian Green said that immigration levels of students under the student visa at level 4 were "unsustainable." There have been rumors that the popular Tier 1 post study work visa that allows graduate students to stay in England for two years to work and possibly earn a longer term highly qualified Tier 1 or Tier 2 Visa General Visa General will be deleted.

The immigration minister has suggested that the United Kingdom is not to attract the best students, only half the students are attending courses at university level. British Home Office research suggests that one fifth of pupils are still in the UK after five years.

Immigration Minister Green has stated:

"We can not assume that everyone coming here has the skills of the workforce in the UK can not offer."

"We need to strengthen regulation so that all students benefit from us"

On a positive note to the Minister of Immigration stated that:

"I do not want to interfere with the success stories of our universities."

It is likely that there will be a reform of the UK student visa and a limit on the number of student visas Level 4, published in the future. The British government said that two-fifths of students in the group British Home Office sample remain in the UK after five years. Work visas such as the Tier 1 visa to study at the workplace, the highly skilled Tier 1 and Tier 2 visa General General visa will also be discussed. According to the Office for National Statistics, United Kingdom immigration increased in 2009 from 33,000 to 196,000.

Immigration Minister Green has said that the coalition government took over an immigration system of the former Labor government that was "largely out of control":

"What these numbers tell me is that we also need to look any other way [outside employment] by which people come to this country, perhaps for education, for reasons of family reunification and, in particular roads that lead to permanent settlement, "

Sally Hunt, general secretary of the University and College Union stated that:

"The populist policies on immigration could play well nationally, but globally, we risk looking foolish.

"Damian Green made his remarks today after returning from a trip to India where he encouraged students to come to the United Kingdom."

If you want to enter the student visa at level 4 or stay at a post study work, you should consider applying as soon as possible. It seems likely that there will be limits on student visas Level 4 in the future and it is very possible if not that the visa of Tier 1 post study work will be removed.
