Foreign Students's picture

International student visas have been in the news a lot recently as the UK Government has revealed proposed plans to cut them by up to 25% over the next 5 years. However, a number of high profile academics have spoken out against this, saying it is the wrong way to stop fake students from getting visas and it may put off genuine ones.

What do you think is the best way to stop 'fake' students from getting visas? Do you feel threatened by these new visa changes?


thats a relief...i needed to renew mine in a few monthsLaughing


I don't think setting numbers is the right thing to do. It just gives the media a sensationalist headline and also probably won't stop the right people from getting a visa. 

Thanks for the news.

I'm just glad I'm from Switzerland!
