UK To ‘kick Out Foreign Graduates’ To Curb Immigration

UK’s home secretary Theresa May said making sure immigrants leave Britain at the end of their visa is as important a part of running a fair and efficient immigration system.

LONDON – Foreign graduates could face being sent back to their home countries under plans to “move towards zero net student migration” reportedly being considered by Britain’s home secretary Theresa May.

Students from non-European Union countries would have to subsequently apply for a work visa while abroad in order to continue living in the UK after finishing a course of study, Sunday Times reported, instead of being able to apply for one while still on British soil.

A source close to the home secretary told the newspaper: “Making sure immigrants leave Britain at the end of their visa is as important a part of running a fair and efficient immigration system as controlling who comes here in the first place.”
