Nigerian students in the UK, others risk deportation

Published

Nigerian students, and other immigrant students in the UK, are facing a high risk of deportation after the completion of their studies.

This fresh development follows a new plan by the country’s Home Secretary, Suella Braverman. At the moment, those travelling to study in Britain can stay for up to 2 years after completing their courses.

However, Braverman is moving to cut that to just six months, after which they have to have a skilled job that makes them eligible for a work visa or leave the UK.

Nonetheless, reports have it that the Department for Education is said to resist Braverman’s plan.

According to the report, the development is the latest twist in a long-running row over foreign student numbers.

Braverman has committed to cutting immigration and ‘substantially reducing’ the number of unskilled foreign workers coming to Britain, from 239,000 to the tens of thousands.

As part of that, she wants to reduce the number of international students who can apply for a graduate post-study work visa, which allows any student who has passed their degree to remain and work in the UK for at least two years.

But education officials fear this will make the UK less attractive to foreign students, who pay far more than UK students for their courses and are a significant source of income for universities
