International students will now be allowed to stay in UK for 2 years after studies

International students will be allowed to stay in the UK for two years after graduating, in a policy U-turn on post-visa studies.

International students are currently only permitted to remain in the UK for up to four months after completing their studies under rules that were introduced by Theresa May when she was the Home Secretary.

The new strategy, announced by the Prime Minister, is aimed at boosting the appeal of Britain as a university destination for overseas students.

From 2021, international students who enroll on undergraduate, postgraduate or PhD courses in the UK will be able to stay in the country for two years after they graduate.
