英国新增23所大学享受签证试点计划,留学生获6个月就业延长期,留英工作迎春天

2017-12-22 14:36:35 编辑:无 浏览:(522次)

据英国政府网消息,12月18日英国内政部宣布:一项已经在牛津大学、剑桥大学、巴斯大学和伦敦帝国学院实施一年的签证试点计划,再新增23所试点大学。国际硕士毕业生在毕业后将多出6个月的签证时间,可以留在英国找工作。

进入试点计划的大学将可在2018~2019学年的招生中享受签证试点计划带来的便利。而这些大学之所以被选入计划试点范围,主要是因为他们的拒签率与其他区域大学相比始终是最低的。

在这一计划下,上述试点大学的国际生攻读硕士课程的过程可简化到13个月或者更短时间;并且在毕业时可在英国停留6个月时间以寻找工作并获得工作签证。

由于参与计划的试点大学获得了审查学生资格的权利,申请这些大学的国际留学生将不必再像以前那样提交大量的申请文件,从而简化并加快了学生签证的办理流程。

但值得注意的是,这些简化政策并不适用于不符合移民法规的申请人。所有学生仍然要接受英国内政部的安全和身份检查。

对此,英国移民部长兰登·刘易斯评论说:

我很高兴项目的试点范围在不断扩大,这样将使英国的顶尖大学吸引到更多的优秀学生,进而保持强大的国际竞争力。

自2010年以来,来英国学习的留学生数量增长了24%。英国依旧是全球第二大留学目的国。

这些事实足以证明,英国永远欢迎那些真正致力于求学的学生,而从未去限制进入英国大学的国际学生数量。

最新的内政部统计数据也显示,去年申请签证的学生人数增加了8%,申请罗素大学的学生人数增加了9%。

以下是新增的23所项目试点大学:

英国政府网消息

A pilot which is looking at streamlining the process for international Masters students wanting to study in the UK has been extended to an additional 23 universities, the Immigration Minister announced today.
Currently in its 2nd year with the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, Bath and Imperial College London, the pilot will streamline the process for international students looking to study on a Masters course of 13 months or less in the UK.  It also provides greater support for students who wish to switch to a work visa and take up a graduate role, by allowing them to remain in the UK for 6 months after they have finished their course.

Responsibility

Universities taking part are given responsibility for eligibility checks, meaning that students can submit fewer documents than required in the current process alongside their visa applications.  Applicants that do not meet immigration rules will be refused. All students will continue to require Home Office security and identity checks.  The additional 23 universities to benefit from the pilot include 2 in Scotland, 2 in Wales and 1 in Northern Ireland as well as universities from across England.

Immigration Minister Brandon Lewis said: I am delighted to announce the expansion of this pilot which is part of our ongoing activity to ensure that our world-leading institutions remain highly competitive. The UK continues to be the 2nd most popular destination for international students and the number coming to study at our universities has increased by 24% since 2010. This is a clear indication that genuine students are welcome and there is no limit on the number who can come to study in the UK.

Increase The most recent Home Office statistics show that the number of students applying for visas increased by 8% over the past year, and there has been a 9% increase in the number of students applying to Russell Group universities. The 23 additional universities will be able to apply the pilot to their 2018/19 intake. The universities were selected as their visa refusal rates are consistently the lowest in their area or region.
