Statement of Changes In Immigration Rules Took Effect On 3 August 2015 – Students Most Affected


One main issue that I spotted is the effect it has to the Tier 4 (General) Students under the Points Based System.

It states that new students at publicly funded further education colleges who apply after 12 November 2015 will be prevented from able to work in the UK and will no longer be able to switch their visas to working visas in the UK. They will also be unable to extend their visas in the UK, they must go home first and extend it there from their country of origin. The time limit to study will be reduced from three years to two – no extension will be allowed.

This will be a pain to many students.
